Ferris wheel breaks down in Hollywood

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.

A number of people had to be rescued when the Ferris wheel broke down Thursday night in Hollywood.

Los Angeles firefighters used a long ladder to rescue the trapped people. It is not known what caused the Ferris wheel to stop working.

No one was hurt. It took fire fighters more than an hour and a half to get everyone down.

The Ferris wheel was part of a carnival at Hollywood High School.
