Riders Get Stuck after State Fair Monorail Stalls
Sacramento Fire crews had to show up at the California State Fair to help riders get off a stuck monorail train.
Crews started helping get riders off the struck train around 4:14 p.m., according to Sacramento Fire. 38 people were stuck in the train for about an hour.
While stuck up in the air, the stuck passengers were given water.
By 5:21 p.m., State Fair officials announced that all passengers were safe.
The fair has their own lifts they used to get the riders down, but they called the fire department for further help.
State Fair workers are continuing to investigate why the monorail stopped working. The ride will remain closed until repairs can be made and Cal/OSHA does an inspection.
The State Fair monorail is one of three operating monorails in the country and underwent a $1 million renovation in 2011.
