Orlando FreeFall: Crews work to dismantle 400-foot ride nearly one year after teenager died from falling off
Nearly one year after 14-year-old Tyre Sampson died as a result of falling off of the Orlando FreeFall, crews are working to take down the ride.
Orlando FreeFallSampson died on March 24, 2022 after falling off the Orlando FreeFall at ICON Park in Orlando, Florida. An operating manual for the Orlando FreeFall states that the maximum passenger weight for the ride is just over 286 lbs. Sampson was 6 feet, 5 inches tall and weighed 330 pounds, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Nikki Fried, former Florida commissioner of agriculture and consumer services, said that maladjustments made to the seat’s proximity sensor triggered the safety light, incorrectly allowing Sampson to ride even though he was not”properly secured in the seat.”

Mother reaches settlement with ICON Park, Orlando FreeFall operator after teen’s fatal fallThe mother of a Missouri teenager who fell to his death while on the world’s tallest tower drop ride has reached a settlement in a wrongful death lawsuit with the Florida amusement park and ride’s operator, attorney says. Well. Can’t wait for the lawsuits coming from not allowing some fat people onto rides She’s already spent the money… As believer in JESUS CHRIST, I am being convicted that being compensated for loss of life or injury is sin. It is equivalent to selling blood, body organ or human life. CHRISTIANS SHOULD NEVER SEEK COMPENSATION FOR SUCH MISFORTUNES. Otherwise, you are involved in an evil trade.
