Dozens of people came together to hold up a fair ride when one of the legs broke Thursday evening at the Bartow County Fair in Georgia.
Six children were on the roller coaster at the time, but no one was injured when it broke. The ride is now closed until it passes state inspection.
"I was scared to go over there; I thought I was going to see someone cut in half," witness Whitney Castro said.
Castro recorded the aftermath when a children's coaster called the Orient Express derailed.
"When I saw the ride tip, my stomach dropped," Castro said. "I was scared I was going to see dead people."
The Georgia State Fire Marshal found improper welding on the track that held the coaster, which WSB learned has not been inspected since April 15.
Three more rides were shut down Friday after inspectors found additional problems.
The fair will be fined monetarily if there are any other issues.
Officials say the fair will now be subject to pop-up inspections.
