An accident of a roller coaster trapped eleven people for two hours.

Their carriages were going up at high speed when they suddenly stopped. The scared people couldn't do anything. They had to wait for firefighters to save them.

The owners said that the roller coaster had been checked before. According to their information the coaster is fine and it is certified for use until next September.

Interesting words: roller coaster (railway which goes steeply up and down), trapped (not able to move), carriage (one part of a train).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
