Accident at Ohio State Fair sends shockwaves across amusement industry

COLUMBUS, OHIO-A  tragedy at the Ohio State Fair Wednesday night that left one man dead and five critically injured has sent shockwaves across the amusement industry.

People across the country are starting to ask how safe are the rides at county fairs and state fairs.

The other five people are in intensive care or in surgery.
