Close to two dozen passengers on the "Skyflyers" ride at the Lancaster Carnival were stuck in the air for about an hour Saturday night after the ride malfunctioned. 

According to the ride's inspector, the malfunction was caused by a computer glitch. No one was in any danger. Operators were eventually able to slowly lower the passengers to the ground. 

The ride will be closed for the remainder of the carnival as a precaution.
