There was a fatal accident Wednesday evening at the Ohio State Fair

1 killed, 7 injured in Ohio State Fair ride malfunctionThe North Carolina Department of Labor said the exact ride was in operation in the Charlotte area just 2 and a half months ago. Victims range in age from teenagers to a person in their 60s.

Albert Kroon, KMG's project leader said, "We are now gathering information on the accident and investigating the cause and circumstances of the accident".

"Safety is our number one concern at North American Midway Entertainment".

"I felt sorry for all those kids who were in the accident though", he said.

The Fire Ball was scheduled to appear at the CNE in August and September, but spokesperson Tran Nguyen said it will no longer be part of the 18-day fair. "It's been here for several years, and we've never had one incident with it". "We're in no rush to reopen the ride".

Gov. Eric Holcomb confirmed this morning that the "Fire Ball" was originally going to be at this year's fair.

As the investigation into a deadly malfunction at the Ohio State Fair continues, there's a spotlight on fair safety here in West Michigan.

Officials say the Fireball was inspected multiple times, including by a third-party inspector.

"We do not rush inspections", Daniels said.

The ride had passed an inspection this week, according to state records.

"Inspection of rides takes place prior to the opening of the midway during ride setup". "They've got a great program, a nationally recognized program".

In fact, Oklahoma is one of only 30 states that regulate amusement rides. Halsey said that is enough to make sure every operator is inspected at least once. Lisko Amusements provides the rides for the Lake County Fair. Riders on the Fire Ball are swung back and forth in the air as if they're on a pendulum.

"Of course we want to get to the bottom of this", OH governor John Kasich said in one of several press conferences about the event.

Amusement ride owners have voluntarily shut down the six Fire Ball rides in California parks, after a fatal ride malfunction on the Fire Ball in Columbus, at the Ohio State Fair.

And a 13 year-old-child was among those hurt in the accident on the "Fire Ball" attraction that hoists and spins people in the air.
