SANDUSKY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Cedar Point has closed one of its rides, the Skyhawk, after two riders were hurt in an incident Saturday night.

Bryan Edwards, Cedar Point Public Relations Manager, said in a statement that a cable on one of the ride's carriages disconnected around 10 p.m. Saturday. The cable came in contact with two guests.

One person was treated at the scene and released. As a precaution, the other guest was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.

Ride crews immediately shut down the Skyhawk and notified the park's emergency personnel. Skyhawk will remain closed until their investigation is complete and the ride is determined safe to reopen.

According to Cedar Point's website, the Skyhawk is the world's tallest swing ride at 125 feet. Two giant arms that hold 20 riders each swing in a 60 mph scissor motion.
