Man stuck for hour on Las Vegas zipline before being rescued
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A man stuck dangling from a Las Vegas zipline about 80 feet above a street for nearly an hour is back on the ground after being rescued by firefighters.
Las Vegas Fire & Rescue spokesman Timothy Szymanski said firefighters rescued the rider from SlotZilla at the downtown Fremont Street Experience shortly after 3 p.m. Friday.
He says a passer-by called at 2:34 p.m. to report a man stuck above Fourth Street since about 2 p.m.
He says SlotZilla workers stayed with the man while he was suspended and tried to bring him down but eventually asked firefighters on hand to reach him.
The $40 “zoomline” rides involve flying over Fremont Street superhero-style facing the ground.
Fremont Street Experience spokeswoman Lauren Silverstein says a team is investigating the incident.
