Corrosion is being blamed for the deadly thrill ride accident at the Ohio State Fair last month.
One person was killed and several others were injured when a swinging pendulum-like ride broke off and sent riders flying through the air. An 18-year-old man was killed. The ride's Dutch manufacturer is saying that excessive corrosion of a support beam likely caused the "catastrophic failure." As a result of the accident, similar rides at other fairs around the country were shut down.
