A seven-year-old boy was among 24 people to be rescued when a popular ride stopped in the middle of the air at the Hull Fair on Saturday night.

City Star Flyer suddenly collapsed, leaving horrific thrill seekers hanging in the air on seated swings.

A rider – a seven-year-old boy – received medical attention on the spot.

According to a witness, the staff was forced to cross the trip to help people trapped for about 30 minutes.

They told Hull Live: “Two workers rescuing the rescue. Still up there, there are no signs of the fire department either.

“They’ve been up there for some time now.”







Two people who were on the trip when it broke down said they were left shaken and nervous.

They said it felt like the trip would fall and get cold as they got stuck high in the air.

Zara Tomlinson, 21, from West Hull, said: “We were on the trip for ages. We had no idea what was happening. I thought the trip would just fall.”

Miss Tomlinson also explained how she “almost darkened” on another trip, which made her “even more nervous.”

Another passenger, James Goodwin, 22, from West Hull, said: “We were a little nervous and we were a little shaken when we got down. It’s cold up there and we were getting very cold.”

A worried relative who was waiting for their two teenage families to be rescued from the trip said at the time, “We are quite worried about them, we do not know how long they will be up there and we just hope they are ok.”

City Star Flyer is now up and running again.

The Hull Fair is one of the largest travel fairs in Europe, offering over 250 rides and a range of attractions.
