An exceptionally bright fireball was spotted in the skies all across the Netherlands on Thursday night. Dozens of people in the Netherlands as well as Belgium reported seeing the bright streak of light around 9:00 p.m. It was very likely a meteor, though that can not be said with absolute certainty yet, Felix Bettonvil of Leiden Observatory said to AD.
A fatal accident with a carnival attraction in Ohio, United States last month, was caused by "excessive corrosion", or rust, manufacturer KMG said in a statement on Sunday. One person was killed and seven were injured when a gondola on the ride - called Fireball in Ohio, but produced under the name Afterburner at KMG - broke loose while the ride was running.
Dutch company KMG called on all operators of its Afterburner fairground attraction to turn off the ride after a fatal accident with one at the Ohio State Fair on Wednesday. The company asked operators to keep the attraction shut down as a precaution while they investigate exactly what happened in the United States, AD reports.
