VENTURA, Calif. >> Authorities have rescued three men — including one who was hanging upside down — after they became stuck on a bungee jump ride at the Ventura County Fair.
It happened shortly before 8 p.m. Wednesday.
The Ventura County Star says it took at least 20 minutes before rescuers were able to reach a man who apparently had jumped from a crane and was stuck upside down about 30 feet in the air.
He was taken down by a ladder truck and wasn’t hurt.
Two other men were trapped in a steel box that also was attached to the crane. A harness attached to a rope system enabled each man to climb down safely.
It’s unclear what caused the ride to malfunction.
