Fox News reports a funeral service was held Tuesday for a man who was killed last week on an amusement park ride at the Ohio State Fair in Columbus.

Friends and family honored 18-year-old Tyler Jarrell at the Grove City United Methodist Church, about 10 miles south of Columbus. Police officers and U.S. Marines also attended the service for Jarrell, who had recently enlisted in the Marines.
