Siblings stuck 60 feet in air at Iowa State Fair

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

A brother and sister spend some quality time together above the Iowa State fairgrounds, 60 feet in the air.

The siblings from Algona got more than what they paid for after hopping on The Ejection Seat ride Monday afternoon.

Officials at the fair say the two were flung into the air over the noon hour, but couldn't come back down due to a malfunction of the ride.

The dangling riders were finally back on their feet around 3:30 p.m. Rescue crews had to bring in a crane to get them down. They were not injured.

Fair officials aren't sure what caused the malfunction.
