Carnival Ride Collapses

Thanks to the many folks who contacted me about the collapse of a carnival ride in California; if you haven't heard about it, this story seems to be pretty thorough, with photos as well. An AP story indicates that an initial investigation suggests a failure in the spinning motion, resulting in the swing chains getting tangled and ultimately leading to the collapse (presumably due to a weight imbalance, but that's just my guess).

The ride is a Chance Yo-Yo; has good photos. It's a very popular ride with, to my knowledge, a very good record.
