Workers at a nearby Jaguar plant in Birmingham helped rescue two men trapped on a car factory robot-based thrill ride.

The hydraulically-operated Robocoaster ride at the Star City complex on Wednesday night stopped unexpectedly with the two riders held upside-down 15 feet in the air, according to a BBC report.

Fire crews tried to free the men from their harnesses by building a platform beneath them to support their weight. The rescue crews also asked their counterparts at the Jaguar factory to help.

The men were eventually released after car plant engineers managed to override the attraction’s safety systems.

The men were unharmed, but were taken to Heartlands Hospital, in Birmingham, for checks.

The Robocoaster, which was designed by Warwick engineer Gino De-Gol, opened in April. He based the ride on robots that build cars on factory production lines.

A 22ft robotic arm seats two people, throwing them in a number of directions so that no two rides are the same.

The Robocoaster has appeared in the James Bond film Die Another Day and Tomb Raider II, the BBC report said.
