New Jersey has ordered a shutdown of rides similar to the "Super Sizzler" ride where a 10-year-old girl died last week. According to NJ.com, the Department of Community Affairs' Carnival Ride Safety Unit is investigating the incident which occurred during a harvest festival in Cumberland County.

The spinning ride, which reportedly passed inspection in April, has rotating arms and carries 12 cars that spin passengers in the opposite direction.

The state is waiting for the cause of the accident to be established.
