It started like any other day at the fun fair.
The park was packed, hot dog stands doing a booming trade as were the cotton candy and ice cream vans.
Children and adults alike queued in good spirits for their favourite rides as they enjoyed the seasonal holiday atmosphere.
Screams of delight turned to terror as the two rides spun madly out of control.
Those on the swings stood no chance as the cables entwined with the wheel, dragging them down and sideways to the ground, splinters of wood, blood and bodies flying everywhere.
Thirty nine people died with 211 injured, mainly kids.
In the hospital, one man lay weeping, inconsolable in his grief and guilt.
Two hundred and fifty casualties, all for the sake of a screw left over from his maintenance check a week ago.
