Firefighters rescue teenagers stuck on roller coaster

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (NBC) - Metro Fire of Sacramento rescued several teenagers from an immoveable roller coaster Monday.

The teens were riding the coaster at the Scandia Fun Center in North Highlands when it stopped moving about 65-feet in the air.

Furthermore, firefighters used an aerial ladder truck to rescue them.

Despite efforts by technicians to get the car moving, they weren't able to get it working.

While Metro Fire and technicians did not know what caused the coaster to stop moving, no one suffered injures.
