Tragedy at Ohio State Fair

posted by Joel - 

 One person was killed and seven others injured yesterday (July 26th), three of them critically, when a part of one of the rides at the Ohio State Fair broke off as people were riding it. Video of the accident shows the ride, called the Fire Ball, swinging back and forth and spinning around when it crashes into something and part of the ride flies off, flinging riders to the ground. Officials are investigating to see what caused the ride, which had been inspected, to break apart. The Ohio State Fair will be open today, but the rides won't be running until they are all inspected again and determined to be safe.


Video is very quick and tough to watch... be advised.
