Aaron Kohr, ThinkStock

Two people were injured at Cedar Point after a cable snapped on a ride.

A cable on Skyhawk snapped injuring two people around 10:00pm on Saturday. One person was brought to the hospital. The other person was treated at Cedar Point.

Skyhawk is 125 feet tall making it the world’s tallest swing ride. A total of 40 riders can fit onto two swinging arms that travel as fast as 60 mph.

Cedar Point made the following statement:

At approximately 10 p.m., a cable on one of the Skyhawk swing ride’s carriages disconnected. The ride’s crew immediately shut down the ride and notified the park’s emergency personnel. The cable came in contact with two guests. One was treated and released at the scene. As a precaution, the other was transported to a local hospital for evaluation.
