Customers at a Cincinnati waterfront restaurant got taken for a harried ride after the eatery broke free of its moorings, according to local media reports.
The Waterfront Restaurant traveled several feet down the Ohio River on Friday before being lodged under the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge, CNN affiliate WLWT-TV in Cincinnati reported.
Patrons were rescued when firefighters created a makeshift ramp and attached it to the barge, according to WLWT. A safety cable prevented the boat from floating down the river.
No injuries were reported in the incident, which involved about 150 patrons, according to CNN affiliate WKRCÂ in Cincinnati.
Owner Jeff Ruby told WKRC that when he arrived at the scene Friday night it took him 30 minutes to persuade rescuers to let him aboard the barge.
Ruby said engineers would investigate the cause of the incident, according to WKRC.
WKRC said the Ohio River is aboutÂ three feet above flood stage, which likely played a role in the incident.
