23 rescued from roller coaster at California Adventure


A backpack fell from one of the cars onto the tracks of a roller coaster at California Adventure in the Disneyland Resort, shutting down the California Screamin’ ride Friday evening and temporarily stranding 23 riders who were rescued by Anaheim firefighters.

No one was injured in the incident, which occurred at about 6:30 p.m., according to Suzi Brown, a spokeswoman for the resort.

The ride was expected to reopen Saturday.
