Twenty four passengers were saved after being stranded on a roller coaster at Six Flags in Maryland.

According to NBC, Prince George’s County Fire Department brought the 24 riders down from 79 feet high on the Joker’s Jinx ride with a rescue bucket after being stuck for almost five hours. All passengers were not injured, but will go through a medical evaluation.

“They are in a divot of the track, so they are in a place where they can’t really go forward or backward without power,” Marc Bashoor, the county’s fire department chief, said, CBS reported. “At first, I think everybody was OK. And then as the sun baked on them, I am sure folks started getting more antsy about being up there.”

The park responded with giving water, umbrellas and sunblock to the two dozen passengers.

“The ride has a sophisticated, computerized safety system that can cause such ride stoppages. While we are not yet sure what caused the stoppage, the ride performed as it is designed to,” Six Flags said in a statement.

The incident happened at around 2:30 p.m. with 17 adults and seven children. The ride was closed down for the rest of the day.
