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.
