14 years old boy died falling from ride
Amusement park Orlando

A 14-year-old boy has died after falling from a “Free Fall” ride at ICON Park in Orlando, Florida.
The boy, who has been identified as Tyre Sampson, was visiting from Missouri with his friend’s family when the incident occurred on Thursday night at around 11 p.m.

Reportedly, the ride featured a pull-over harness that’s typical for amusement park rides, except this one hadn’t been fastened all the way and there was no secondary seatbelt as there should have been.

Online, a video taken by a bystander showing the moments before and after the fall has been shared widely — but to a mixed response.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office later confirmed that a 14-year-old boy was transported to the hospital, where he died from his injuries.
