October 12, 2011COMING at 11 on 7 -- State Fair accident eyewitness account:
"my daughter had been on the swings beforehand; we were on the skylift when we saw it... heard a loud bang (as the part dislodged?) then another as it hit something. It landed in the swings, which were loading. People ran screaming out of the swings ride; one young guy stayed in his swing, doubled over. He was being tended to as we passed ovehead... husband describes it as traveling a '40 foot arc into the other ride'... it would have been 10x worse had the swings been in motion"
