Man Stranded Upside Down On Bungee Jump At Ventura County Fair, But Okay After Rescue

A young man who wanted the thrill of a bungee jump at the Ventura County Fair got more of a thrill than he was expecting.

The young man was connected to the bungee when some type of a malfunction left him stuck Wednesday night, hanging upside down at the end of his jump. Ventura firefighters used a ladder truck to rescue the 19 year old man, who was stranded for about 15 minutes. He was unhurt.

Two others in the bungee cage at the top of the ride also had to be rescued by firefighters.
