14 year old boy falls from ride video

A seat on a Florida amusement park ride that a 14-year-old boy fell to his death from last month was manually adjusted and unsafe, according to an accident report released Monday. The modification allowed space between the seats.



This video views the issues prior to the 14-year-old boy passing away after falling from the Orlando FreeFall ride.



That modification allowed Tyre Sampson to fall from the ride, billed as “the world’s tallest free-standing drop tower,” on March 24 while he was visiting ICON Park from his home in Missouri. The ride did not experience a mechanical or electrical failure, the report found.
