Dallas realtor stuck on Stratosphere: “It was cold up there”
Passengers more than 200 feet up were taken down, one by one, by firefighters.
FAIR PARK Missy Woehr with Allie Beth Urban was one of a handful of people stuck on Friday night on the Stratosphere at the State Fair of Texas -- 210 feet high up in the air! I would have died and had to commence Lamaze breathing techniques for 2.5 hours, the length of time Missy withstood the elements with Carol Stradtman from Hexter Fair Title.
UPDATE: Happy to report she is down and safe as of 11:54 p.m. Friday. Each stranded rider was brought down individually by (she said, hot) Dallas Fire rescue teams, one by one. The Stratosphere broke down because of an apparent power outage.
“So glad I had taken a jacket,” said Woehr, teeth still chattering when she got down. “Some people were up in shorts and flip-flops.”
Missy says she wishes someone would have flown by with glass of chardonnay. (Are you listening, Spirit Airlines?) Or that she and Carol could have, at least, had downtown views. But hey, who’s complaining? They are more than grateful to be home, warm, and feet touching Dallas dirt.
