Firefighters rescued three people who got stuck Wednesday evening on a bungee-jump attraction at the Ventura County Fair, officials said.

Shortly before 8 p.m. on the fair’s opening night, fire crews were called to the fairground, where a 19-year-old man had been dangling upside down 30 feet in the air for about half an hour, according to a dispatcher with the Ventura County Fire Department. Crews rescued him using a ladder.

The two others were rescued from a basket between 90 and 100 feet in the air, where they had been waiting to jump, the Ventura Fire Department said in a statement. The pair were too high to reach with a ladder so crews had to set up a rope system to rappel them down.

No one was injured.
