Passengers rescued as Sea World rollercoaster gets stuck

A ROLLER coaster ride at Sea World on the Gold Coast took an extra scary turn around lunchtime Wednesday. 

One of the cars from the Storm Coaster ride got stuck at the top, just before its first drop. 

Witnesses said passengers were rescued quickly and the ride fixed.
