MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- The Milwaukee County Zoo experienced problems with the sky glider Wednesday afternoon.

A zoo spokeswoman told our affiliate, WISN, about a dozen people were stuck on the ride for half an hour.  A worker was able to get a backup system to function long enough to get the riders off safely.

The glider is now closed for inspection and any necessary repairs.
