2 People Fall From Derailed Roller Coaster In Daytona Beach

It took Daytona Beach firefighters about an hour to rescue stranded riders on a Daytona Beach roller coaster that derailed last night. 

Two people suffered traumatic injuries when they plunged 34 feet to the ground and another four were hospitalized after the incident. 

10 people had to be rescued from the ride when the front car came off the tracks of the Sand Blaster roller coaster at about 8:30 last night. 

The Sand Blaster has been in Daytona since 2013, after being relocated from a closed amusement park in Delaware. One report said it was closed down last year due to safety violations.
