23 Riders Stuck on Disney Coaster

KTLA: Nearly two-dozen people had to be rescued when a roller-coaster at Disneyland's California Adventure theme park came to a halt Friday afternoon.

According to the Anaheim Fire Department, an object fell from one of the cars on the California Screamin' ride around 6:30 p.m. Friday.

The object, later identified to be a backpack, fell onto the track while ride was upside down, causing the ride to stop.

Firefighters used ladders to rescue all 23 riders. No injuries were reported

The bag was removed from the track and the ride was not reopened Friday, according to Disney officials.

In 2005, 33 people were injured on the roller-coaster when the brakes failed.
