chester bennington widow releases statement

Chester Bennington's widow is rightfully devastated following the Linkin Park frontman's suicide.

As we previously reported, the Numb artist died last week after committing suicide via hanging on what would've been his friend Chris Cornell's 53rd birthday. While Bennington's bandmates and peers have already spoken out about the rocker's untimely passing, Talinda Bennington has only just released a statement as she's still trying to make sense of the tragedy that has plagued her family.

One of the eight victims of a deadly ride malfunction at the Ohio State Fair this week is speaking out after leaving the hospital.

Abdihakim Hussein told WCMH that Wednesday's ride turned horror machine was his very first trip to a fair — and definitely would be his last.

The 19-year-old and his 20-year-old girlfriend Hannah Sallee had lined up for the Fire Ball just after arriving at the Columbus-based event with friends.

As the Fire Ball swung in its signature pendulum motion during the ride, the pair noticed the ground was creeping closer and closer to them. If that wasn't scary enough, the employee running the attraction didn't seem to know how to stop it.

Hussein recalled:

"I'm sitting there scared, trying to get off and it's still swinging. I'm looking at the dude like, ‘Are you going to stop this?' And he didn't know what he was doing, just clicking the button. Afterwards, he just ran."

The first time rider said debris from the ride hit half of his body after the row of seats next to them collided with the barrier of the platform. Sallee, who sat next to him, barely missed getting hit.

Hussein said the ride kept swinging even after the collision which caused the death of one rider, remembering:

Putting honor before promotion.

The Walking Dead producers have canceled their upcoming press tour panel at the Television Critics Association to attend the funeral of stuntman John Bernecker, who died in an on-set accident last month.

Showrunner Scott Gimple was expected to attend the bi-annual press event on Saturday alongside executive producers Gale Anne Hurd, Robert Kirkman, Dave Alpert, and Greg Nicotero.

But producers have decided to skip out on the event as it would conflict with the 33-year-old's funeral service, AMC said in a statement on Thursday.

As we previously reported, Bernecker was filming a stunt for Season 8 in July which required him to fall over 20 feet off of a balcony onto a safety pad.

According to assistant director Matthew Goodwin, Bernecker failed to get a "good separation" from the balcony and missed the safety cushion, instead landing on his head and neck on the concrete.

Bernecker was airlifted to an Atlanta medical center and was placed on a ventilator, which his family opted to turn off the next day.

AMC shut down production on Season 8 for a week following Bernecker's death. The hit series returns on October 22.
