OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City firefighters escorted eight people -- including seven children -- from a roller coaster that became stuck.

District Chief Benny Fulkerson said there were no injuries and firefighters walked the stranded riders down a catwalk to safety after the amusement park ride became stuck.

He said the children range in age from 7 to 15.

Fulkerson said the Silver Bullet roller coaster at Frontier City "just didn't make it over a hill" and became stuck.

Fulkerson also said power to the ride was shut off and the cars were chained to the rail before the stranded riders were escorted down one at a time.
