Firefighters say one man is dead and another man was hurt after their equipment failed while working on the Tulsa Fairgrounds Sky Ride. They say the workers were standing in a cart and wearing harnesses while replacing wheels on the Sky Ride when their cart got loose and crashed to the ground. The equipment failure caused both men to fall and become trapped in their harnesses. One suffered a traumatic head injury and went into cardiac arrest. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
