Deadly accident throws passengers from ride at Ohio State Fair

VIDEO: Teen dies after Ohio ride failure

The manufacturer of the ride involved in a deadly accident at the Ohio State Fair Wednesday is asking all owners of similar rides to shut them down pending an investigation.

A video posted online appears to show several people on the Fire Ball ride seconds before parts of the structure, including a full row of seats, split up and fell.

Ohio Governor John Kasich said he was "terribly saddened" by the incident.

An out-of-control amusement launched OH festivalgoers into the air Wednesday, killing one rider and injuring seven more, eyewitnesses and officials said. Five were taken to the hospital in critical condition, and two victims' conditions were described only as "stable".

Columbus Fire Crew batallion chief Steve Martin said that the riders had been thrown from the Fireball, and an 18-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene from the impact. WTHR has elected not to broadcast that video.

A serious accident on the Fire Ball ride at the Ohio State Fair has resulted in death and injuries.

"The Fire Ball swings riders 40' above the midway while spinning them at 13 revolutions per minute", the website said.

The Fed, leaving rates unchanged, expects to wind down stimulus 'relatively soon'
Several other members of the Fed's policy-making committee have expressed concern about weak inflation in recent weeks. Another measure of inflation, the Consumer Price Index , dipped to 1.6% year-over-year in June.

The fair did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

One person was killed and several more were injured.

The incident was confirmed on the official Twitter account for the Ohio State Fair. Four rides will not be operating because they do not meet the mechanical test, he said.

"This particular ride was inspected multiple times, including by a third-party inspector", Kasich said. At least four were still closed after inspections."The fair is about the best things in life, and tonight with this accident it becomes a awful, bad tragedy", he said.

It happened Wednesday night at the Ohio State Fair in Columbus.

The Ohio State Fair is set to run until August 6th. "We are investigating and will report information as available", the tweet read. The Ohio State Fair is one of the largest state fairs in the country.
