Six people were sent to the hospital late Thursday after an 85-foot high roller coaster derailed in Daytona Beach, Fla. Two people fell as much as 34 feet to the ground from the Sand Blaster's front car, which was left dangling perpendicular to the beach boardwalk with two others strapped in, reports CNN. They were rescued after more than 30 minutes.
Four riders from a second car and two from a third were also rescued, with six riders in all taking a trip to the hospital, fire officials said. All injured parties were "alert" as they were loaded into ambulances, reports the Daytona Beach News-Journal. The 45-year-old Sand Blaster operated at an amusement park in Delaware before it was installed in Florida in 2013. (Read more Daytona Beach stories.)
