LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) - A ride similar to one that broke apart at the Ohio State Fair has been removed from a county fair in suburban Denver.

The director of Arapahoe County Open Spaces, Shannon Carter, told KMGH-TV that the Freak Out ride was dismantled early Friday “out of an abundance of caution and out of respect for the victims” in Ohio.

The ride had passed a state inspection.

Carter says in depth safety checks will be done on the remaining rides at the county fair every day. Normally those are done once a month.
