66 passengers rescued

3 Jul, 2015

Firefighters rescue 66 people from The Eye after it wheel stops working due to a computer malfunction. Passengers are stuck for three hours while park officials revert to a backup generator that slowly moves the ride’s gondolas to the platform, two at a time. Rescuers then climb in through hatches at the top of each gondola, using a special tool to open the doors and help the passengers escape. There are no injuries.
