(Reuters) - Two dozen people were rescued on Sunday from a Maryland roller coaster that malfunctioned, leaving a car stuck for hours near a high point of the ride, emergency officials said. The passengers were trapped about 75 feet (23 meters) in the air atop the Joker's Jinx roller coaster at the Six Flags America amusement park in Upper Marlboro, outside Washington, fire officials said. The ride stopped working at 2:30 p.m. and the rescue took about four hours, according to Prince George's County Fire Chief Marc Bashoor. Six Flags Entertainment Corp said in a statement the ride would remain closed during an investigation into what caused the malfunction.
