20 trapped on rollercoaster in Aussie park

SYDNEY Twenty people were trapped for almost two hours on a rollercoaster ride at a theme park on Australia's Gold Coast yesterday, said emergency services.

Those trapped on the Arkham Asylum ride were suspended in chairs.

Most were easily rescued, but four could only be reached by emergency personnel via a ladder platform.

No one was injured.

This latest incident, at the Warner Bros Movie World park, follows a deadly accident at Dreamworld theme park last October where four people were killed.
