California theme park riders left dangling 300ft up


About 20 people were left stranded after an amusement park ride broke down in southern California on Wednesday.

When working, Knott's Berry Farm's 'The Wind Seeker' swings people around at a 45 degree angle.

After malfunctioning, its passengers were left dangling 300ft above the park for four hours.

Pictures from TV news helicopters show the group finally being lowered to safety.
