TUSCUMBIA, Ala. – There were some tense moments Wednesday afternoon at Tuscumbia’s Spring Park. Several children became stranded on a amusement ride and had to be rescued by fire fighters.
City leaders said an incident with the rollercoaster has forced its closure. The amusement ride has been part of the parks attraction list for more than 10-years.
On Wednesday, witnesses said the coaster got stuck on the opening climb.
Once on the scene, Tuscumbia fire fighters ascended to the peak and one by one got the kids to safety.
No injuries were reported with the children who became stranded on the ride.
Mayor Underwood said his investigation is still on-going, and he plans to release his findings on Friday.
All other rides at the park continue to operate as normal.
