At the attraction “Fire Ball” at the Ohio State Fair shot a whole row of seats loose and people were from the unit being thrown. The arm with 24 chairs swings back and forth and up and down to twenty metres in height.
Five of the seven injured are in bad shape, have brandweermensen to local media to let them know. The governor of the state of Ohio, John Kasich, has the rides on the fair closed.
Director Albert Crown of KMG late in an interview with Looopings know empathize with the victims. “We exist since 1989, as a serious accident, we have never experienced,” he says.
On Dutch fairs are similar ‘rides’. Crown can not say whether the accident has consequences for devices of the same type. “I see no reason to connect to machines,” he says. “We’re waiting first of the investigations.”
