Monday, July 9, 2018, 4:09 PM - In what the manager of a zipline is calling an "everyday occurrence", a father and his son became trapped on a line above alligator-infested waters at Gatorland park in Orlando, Florida Saturday.

Manager Nick Cahippina told an NBC affiliate the two were never in danger, as the park is staffed with fully-trained guides.

The pair were stranded about 12 metres up for about 25 minutes -- slightly longer than normal due to the man's weight.

A wind gust appears to be what caused the zipline to stop moving.

Video of the incident has gone viral online, racking up hundreds of comments and shares on social media.
