One person has been killed and several injured after an accident on a ride at the Ohio State Fair.

According to BBC News, Fire chief Steve Martin told media outlets that victims were thrown from the “fireball” spinning pendulum ride in the city of Columbus.

Three of the injured are in a critical condition, officials said.

State Governor John Kasich confirmed at least one death, and said he had ordered all fair rides shut until safety inspections were carried out.

He also said a full investigation would be carried out.
