OHIO -

The Ohio State Fair will resume today, but the rides won't be running until they are all determined safe after one person was killed and seven others injured following a ride malfunction.

According to police, three of the injured are in critical condition.

Officials say the victims were riding the "Fire Ball" when an entire row of seats snapped off the ride while it was moving.

Gov. John Kasich has ordered all fair rides shut down until additional safety inspection can be completed.
