Deadly accident at Ohio State Fair caused by corrosion, says ride maker

The manufacturer of an amusement park ride that malfunctioned at the Ohio State Fair in July said on Sunday that the deadly incident was caused by "excessive corrosion."

The Fire Ball ride collapsed on July 26, killing one person and injuring seven others. The ride consists of at least six rows of seats that spin around 40 feet above the ground as the entire structure moves like a pendulum.

Some of the bigger state fairs appear to draw visitors from out of state (Iowa, Minnesota, Texas, Eastern States Exposition). And plenty of people travel to visit the one in their home state, sometimes staying over a night or two.
