Some people were stuck on the Skyliner at Walt Disney World for up to three hours on Saturday night.
A union representative for the fire department that responded says they were prepared to rescue people off the Skyliner, but it never should have happened in the first place.
“We were told that this would not happen, that this wouldn’t happen to the ride and within a week it happened to the ride,” said Reedy Creek Professional Firefighters Association Vice President Sean Pierce.
The gondolas smashed together, causing a three-hour delay and rescue operation Saturday night at Disney.
Pierce says Reedy Creek Fire Rescue rescued six people off one of the gondolas.
It was an operation that required a specialty truck reaching 116 feet in the air.
