Another Reason Why I am Afraid of Heights...

24 people were suspended in the air from a Great America roller coaster for up to five hours yesterday. Luckily the ride broke down while the riders were right-side-up, however some were tipped forward and others were tipped backward. It is a miracle that nobody was hurt.

My friend's son was at the park at the time of the incident. He will be seeking a refund, as a third of the park was shut down during the rescue.

Scary stuff. Yet another reason for me to be afraid of heights.
