Several riders on a hillside tram at Lake of the Ozarks were injured in a malfunction of the system Saturday evening.

According to information provided by the Gravois Fire Protection District, firefighters were called to Pistol Point Loop, northeast of Laurie off Highway O, for a rescue at 4:52 p.m. July 14, 2018. 

The GFPD report indicated there had been a failure of the brakes of a hillside tram, popular in lakeside locations with steep grades.

According to the GFPD report, seven occupants were ejected from the tram car. One patient was transported by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries while several others were treated at the scene and were reportedly going to seek further medical attention on their own.
