Firefighters responded to the emergency, using a ladder truck to rescue the riders. Witnesses say it was a real nail-biter.
"They just took the ladder up and they brought the kids down and we were all over here watching. There's a whole bunch of people over here and was very, very, like I was anxious, " said Dalia Kaissi, who watched the rescue.
No one was hurt. It's not clear what caused the Ferris wheel to break down.
