CNN affiliate Nine News showed footage of the bizarre scene – a Cheetah S200 dangling nearly 40 feet from the ground at a fair in Old Bar, on the seaside in New South Wales.

New South Wales Police said investigators are looking into the mishap.

The pilot, 53, and his passenger, 32, were retrieved by crews using a crane, as were a boy, 9, and girl, 13. The children were trapped on the ride for more than an hour, police said. The two men had to wait a little longer.

Resident Gary Jones told Nine News his 9-year-old twin boys got off the Ferris wheel just seconds before the plane hit.
