About a dozen visitors to the Milwaukee County Zoo were stuck in
the air for about a half hour when a ride malfunctioned.
The Sky Glider
stopped Wednesday afternoon and a back-up system had to be
activated to restart it.
Jennifer Diliberti-Shea tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/VGgI9d
) everything was orderly, and no one panicked. She says the zoo
has a plan in place and regular drills in place for when something
like this happens.
She says the
Milwaukee Fire Department was called, but its help was not needed
because the back-up system got the Sky Glider running again.
But she says the
ride will remain closed for the rest of the day for an inspection
and any necessary repairs.
