A 14-year-old boy Tyre Sampson fell to his death late at night from a free-fall amusement park a complex entertainment facility in Orlando, Florida, around 11:00 pm on the 24th.
The boy was taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital, where he died from his injuries. He was identified as Tyre Sampson, who was on spring break visiting Orlando with his family from Missouri.
Sampson and friends got on the ride just after 11 p.m. when minutes later, please for help could be heard.
A video briefly shared on social media caught the terrifying moment when Tyre Sampson appears to be falling out of his seat and Tyre Sampson body found dead after injuries. The video was posted by one of the users on Twitter, with the handle @44vibeTV. And the username of the account is “44vibe News”.
Orange County Sheriff’s Official and emergency crews responded to a call late Thursday at the Orlando Free Fall ride, which opened late last year at ICON Park on International Drive.
The three witnesses named in the report are all members of staff said reason to death.
There are suggestions that Tyre may have been too large for the ride. His father, Yarnell Sampson, told CNN that “my son was 6’5 (196cm), 340” lbs (154kg). “So, he’s a big guy.”
The state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services posted the ride’s Operations & Maintenance Manual online, which states that the max weight for a rider is 130kg or 287 lbs.

The tower takes riders 430 feet (131 metres) into the air and then drops down at up to 75 mph, according to Orlando’s Icon Park. The accidental Freefall seated 30 people and was a popular attraction that just opened at the end of December last year. It is the tallest in the world, and it is a type that fixes the body by lowering the safety bar (shoulder harness) by itself, it rotates and climbs and then plummets, and the maximum fall speed is about 120 km h (75 mph).It holds 30 passengers that are rotated around the tower and tilted towards the ground before entering free fall.
The Orange County Sheriff’s department said in a statement that officers responded to a 911 call at the Orlando Free Fall ride at Icon Park in Orlando shortly after 11 p.m.
Witnesses on scene reported that someone had fallen from the ride, the sheriff’s department said.
An unidentified witness has been claimed that “I’m still n a shock that something like that happened in front of me, as it is so painful to be seen that a 14-year-old lost his life.”
The ride, which opened in December, holds up to 30 people and is considered the world’s tallest freestanding drop tower, according to the park’s website.
The Free Fall ride and an adjacent ride, the Sling Shot, have been closed indefinitely, Stine said. His company operates the two rides at Icon Park.
“We are cooperating with all other investigations at this time to get to the bottom of what happened,” Stine said.
Stine said there had been no issues reported previously with the Free Fall ride, which opened over the holidays.
NOTE: “Be careful when seeing if large guests fit into the seats. Check that they fit within the contours of the seat and the bracket fits properly. If this is not so — Do not let this person ride,” the manual states.
It’s not clear whether Sampson fit the contours of the seat or if the bracket fit properly.
