An amusement park ride broke apart in mid-air on the opening day of the Ohio State Fair. The accident ejected the passengers into the air with one man who died, landing 15 metres from the ride. Three of the seven injured remain in hospital in critical condition.

Officials say that the ride had passed all of its inspections, and the state’s governor ordered a full investigation into the fatal malfunction.

Difficult words: eject (throw out), fatal (deadly), malfunction (a failure to function normally).
