Emergency workers respond quickly

ANCHORAGE -It was a bungee jump to remember Friday night.
Two adventurous souls took a ride on the slingshot in the parking lot of Crazy Horse Saloon when one of the cables supporting their seat snapped, leaving them hanging in midair.

9 units from the Anchorage Fire Department were dispatched to the scene at 8:24 p.m. As Anchorage Police guided traffic, fire crews were able to safely get both riders from their seat using a bucket lift. The whole event was over in just over an hour.

According to Anchorage Police one of the riders received severe facial injuries. AFD confirms that after evaluating both of the riders at the scene they were transported to local area hospitals for further treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
