SANTA CLARITA, CA - All of the nearly two dozen people stranded when a roller coaster hit a tree branch at Southern California's Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement park have been rescued from the ride.

Firefighters and park maintenance workers removed the last of the 22 people stuck on the Ninja coaster about three hours after the accident Monday night.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department says four people had minor injuries.

The front car was dislodged and dangling from the overhead tracks of the hanging coaster, and firefighters wearing harnesses were removing passengers one by one.
