EL PASO, TX
The ‘El Bandido’ roller coaster at Western Playland got stuck mid-air and trapped eight people on Saturday.
Eight grader Angel Cuevas was one of them.
“It was kinda scary at first. We were pretty much, having fun then, out of nowhere the ride just stopped. We didn’t know what happened, we thought it was just part of the ride,” Cuevas said.
It’s not every day that the fire department gets called out to a roller coaster malfunction, having to rescue multiple people.
