ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Police in Anchorage say two men had to be rescued when a slingshot-type carnival ride known as the “Ejection Seat” apparently malfunctioned Friday night.

Police say they were the only people on the ride at the time. One hit the structure, suffering facial injuries. The second occupant was trapped about 50 feet off the ground for some 45 minutes until rescued by Anchorage firefighters.

Both were taken to local hospitals for treatment and evaluation. Police say the injuries don’t appear to be life-threatening.

Police say the ride, set up in the parking lot of the Crazy Horse Saloon, was operated by a business under the license “Thrills Unlimited.”
