Caught on Video: Ohio State Fair Ride Breaks Mid-Swing, Killing One, Injuring 7


One person died and 7 were injured when a piece of a swinging and spinning ride snapped at the Ohio State Fair Wednesday. State officials said the "Fire Ball" ride had been inspected earlier in the day before it "malfunctioned."  A video posted online showed part of the ride breaking off mid-swing and throwing riders through the air.

 OSU Medical Center, which received three patients from the incident, said "multiple passengers were ejected at high speed" from the ride, traveled at least 20-30 feet and then "crashed at a significant distance from the ride." An 18-year-old was killed, officials said
