Zipliner Stranded Over Gorge is Rescued
Occurred on October 14, 2019 / Canon City, Colorado, USA
Info from Licensor: "My husband and I were visiting the Royal Gorge. We are both terrified of heights, so were nervously watching other people go across the zip line before our turn on the gondola. The zip line is 1,200 feet above the Arkansas River. A young boy was going across when all of a sudden, the ride stopped. He was stuck. He sat out there alone for what seemed like hours. It was really only a few minutes. I got my phone out to record. The worker began putting his gear on, telling the boy to stay calm and that he would be there soon. The crowd was gathering and anxiously awaiting the results. We watched the worker slowly make his way across the zip line, attach himself to the stranded kid, and bring him back across with him. The crowd cheered with relief for the boy. This was on October 14, 2019, at the Royal Gorge Park in Canon City, Colorado."
