State Fair monorail strands riders

By From page A2 | July 18, 2013

SACRAMENTO (AP) — A monorail train at the California State Fair lost power just before 5 p.m. Wednesday, temporarily stranding about 20 passengers. The train travels about 25 feet above the fairgrounds at Sacramento’s Cal Expo.

Sacramento firefighters brought water to the passengers and used a lift to lower them back to the ground.

Assistant Fire Chief Niko King says no one was injured.

There was no immediate prediction on how quickly the ride might be running again.

The California State Fair runs through July 28.
