Corrosion causes deadly Fire Ball ride collapse in U.S. state OH: manufacturer

The ride, the Fireball, had been on the circuit for 18 years when the accident happened that killed an 18-year-old. KMG asked all owners of similar rides to shut them down pending an investigation.

The ride manufacturer, KMG, said Sunday excessive corrosion was found on the inside of the gondola arm, dangerously reducing the metal arm's thickness.

This led to the ride's "catastrophic failure" - AKA spinning out of control and shooting people into the air.

"KMG has reviewed the results of the inspection and worked with industry safety experts to develop an inspection protocol in the form of a Safety Bulletin to allow properly inspected and maintained rides to safely reopen", Kroon said. "On the Afterburner in OH we did the maintenance until a few years ago", Kroon said at the time.

Ohio Department of Agriculture records showed passing marks on inspections for the Fire Ball on about three dozen items, including possible cracks, brakes, proper assembly and installation. His family expects to sue the fair for wrongful death over the incident, CBS News reported. The fair's last day was Sunday.

The "excessive corrosion" was discovered inside the Fire Ball's gondola support beam during a "metallurgical inspection" of the ride, Kroon said.
