Cause Released on Fatal Ohio Fair Incident

Ohio State Fair accident cause released

In a letter published on the KMG Facebook page, product manager Albert Kroon says: 'it was determined that excessive corrosion on the interior of the support beam dangerously reduced the beam's thickness over the years.' An 18-year-old youth was killed and seven people injured when the gondola flew off at high speed.

North American Midway Entertainment, which is not a provider of the Ohio State Fair rides, said in a statement Thursday that "due to the tragic incident ... we will keep all our Fire Ball rides closed until further notice from the manufacturer for precautionary safety measures".

The company that provided the ride to the Ohio State Fair, Amusements of America, described the Fire Ball as an "aggressive thrill" ride.

Tyler Jarrell, 18, was thrown into the air and died on impact 50 feet away.

Graphic video of the accident showed one of the "passenger-carrying gondolas" breaking apart from the central bar of the ride.

The company had ordered fair and carnival operators throughout the country to stop using the Fire Ball ride and others like it following the accident at the Ohio State Fair.

The manufacture said it has collaborated with "industry safety experts to develop an inspection protocol" to prevent future accidents from occurring.

Four of the injured remained hospitalized last week, including an 18-year-old woman in a coma, and Jarrell's 18-year-old girlfriend.

A co-owner of the company that provides rides at the fair in Columbus has said he's certain the ride fell apart because of a mechanical problem. Jarrell's family has hired an attorney to possibly pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. The fair's last day was Sunday.
