I was wondering the same thing. We were at the fair several hours ago and there were a ton of policemen - I'd say at least 10 - talking to some children/moms near one of the kiddie rides but I can't imagine it has anything to do with that.

There was an accident on 580 eastbound before Santa Rita that the various traffic folks on the radio were reporting on, so it could well have been helicopters hovering for a long time reporting on that.

Not to kill the fun or the economy, but having worked at the fair for two years when I was in high school, I will NEVER ride those rides, nor will I allow my child to ride them. Once you meet some of the people who put them together... (shudders).
