MO State Fair Officials Take State's Tougher Ride Inspections Seriously

02 Agosto 2017, 02:30 | Verda Sainz



The Ohio State Fair turned into a nightmare for eight visitors when one of the rides - the #Fire Ball - malfunctioned and ended up killing an 18-year-old and critically injuring seven others.

"This company (that operates the rides) does five counties in OH and West Virginia, and they will be inspected five times this summer", said Massie. "Once they're up, they inspect them themselves".

The state fair reopened the rides to the public on Sunday after the accident on the ride known as Fire Ball. It also states its rides "are safety inspected and passed in three states".

When it comes to how rides are inspected and how the inspectors are trained, some organizations have become leaders in best practices. "Be vigilant", he said. Ask questions of the people operating the rides - they should be well-informed about the machines they are operating. "Cuyahoga County Fair will always do what is required and will monitor day by day throughout fair week to ensure we provide a safe family-friendly atmosphere". "We work with operators who have a history of being good operators, good owners (with) good safety records", Chuckel said.

Alberts said fairgoers should "step back and slow down".

Officials are still investigating the cause of the accident. "The more eyes you have to check something, the better".

Following Wednesday's incident, the Dutch manufacturer KMG International BV instructed operators to suspend use of the ride until further notice.

"But the building process was totally different", Alberts said.

Meantime, the state has released the contract it has with New-Jersey-based Amusements of America, which owns and operates the rides.

"Our thoughts are with those affected by the tragic accident in Ohio", Cote said in an emailed statement. Maybe that person's left town, or is going to leave- they're visiting the fairgrounds and they're going to be gone in a few days.

The state is not legally responsible from claims of injury and death that arise from the company's operation and occupation of the fair, the contract states.
