Scary and painful moments for some riders at a fair in Connecticut.

FOX News Radio's Steve Rappoport reports:

(Witness) "I heard this crash of all this metal and all these seats clinking together."

The fun came to a grinding halt yesterday when a rotating swing ride at the Oyster Festival in Norwalk suddenly stopped. Riders colliding into each other, a dozen children and one adult injured. David Barker saw what happened.

(Barker) "Kids were falling out of it. People running, trying to get some kids out. There was two kids on the floor."

State police blaming a mechanical failure, but what caused it remains under investigation. Other festival rides briefly stopped for inspection.

Editor's Note: Five other people refused treatment at the scene.
