IONIA, Mich. - A ride at the Ionia Free Fair malfunctioned Friday afternoon, the second time so far this week.

A FOX 17 crew at the Ionia Free Fair captured this image of the Equinox ride Friday. Another viewer sent a photo to FOX 17 Thursday of workers climbing a ladder to get person down from the ride.
