Seven carnival workers fell from a roller coaster Sunday while testing the ride for the upcoming Miami-Dade County Fair. Authorities said the Mark One roller coaster was being tested by representatives of the ride's owner, North American Midway Entertainment. A spokesman for Miami-Dade Fire-Rescue said one of the carts apparently jumped off the tracks or was derailed.

I've taken the liberty of notifying the ASO on this and release a media photo of the ride in the story.

Hopefully the employees are okay.

I'd hate to be the one that got thrown off the ride before it left the station. J/K. I hope they all make it.
