A father and son, who were the only two people riding the roller coaster at a Shandong, China amusement park, found themselves hanging upside down when the ride got stuck in the middle of one of its loops.

To make matters worse, recent rains and soft ground made it impossible to evacuate the pair via cherry picker. So instead somebody had to climb the coaster's scaffolding and hook a rope on the car. Then, a group of rescue workers on the ground pulled the father and son to safety.

Check out the harrowing ride -- and amazing rescue -- below.
