Ten people, including children, were rescued after a Ferris wheel suddenly stopped during a carnival at Hollywood High School, a fire official said.

At 7:42. p.m. Thursday, firefighters responded to a non-functioning dual-wheel Ferris wheel with 10 passengers trapped as high as 60 feet in the air, Los Angeles City Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said

Firefighters used a 100-foot ladder to reach passengers and assist them to the ground.
