Video: Dozens Rescued from Calif. Coaster

SANTA CLARA, Calif. Rescue crews have removed the last person stranded on a roller coaster ride at the Great America Theme Park in Santa Clara.

San Jose fire Capt. Scott Kouns says the last of 24 people stranded on the park's Invertigo Roller Coaster were removed Monday evening. No injuries were reported.

The riders had to be lowered one at a time in large buckets at the end of aerial ladders after the coaster came to a stop four hours earlier.

All of the passengers were strapped into the ride and were right side during the rescue.
