"They used ladders to help get people caught in the trip that was approximately 50 feet high.

"They secured the wagons to make sure they were stable." Then a scaffold tower was built and the trapped ones continued to be released and put to safety.

& # 39; The line rescue team established a twin line descent system to rescue three people. It is not believed that there are injuries. "
