Operators at Washington State Fair forced to manually push roller coaster after it breaks down in midair

A roller coaster at the Washington State Fair malfunctioned on Sept. 1, leaving passengers stranded mid-ride until workers at the fair came up to manually push the car.

According to the News Tribune, three fair employees could be seen with harnesses working to push the stuck roller-coaster off the slope it was on, in order for it to glide to a finish.

The incident happened at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup.

Fair spokesperson Stacy Van Horne told the outlet that all passengers were safely taken off the ride and medically evaluated.
