Florida state officials released a preliminary report on the death of 14 yr old Tyre Sampson. The teen died last month while visiting family, and decided to have some fun at an amusement park. Sampson died while on a ride.
Nevetheless, the “Gentle Giant’s” family is expected to file legal charges against the amusement park.
This comes after Ken Martin; an amusement park ride safety analyst and consultant; recently told Fox News Digital he believes the incident is “criminal; and says “somebody killed Mr. Tyre Sampson.”
Samson fell to his death from the Orlando FreeFall ride at ICON Park in Orlando, Florida, March 24. Harrowing video of the incident was shared widely on social media.
Moreover; in a statement regarding his client’s lawsuit; civil rights attorney Ben Crump accused the defendants in Sampson’s case of negligence in “a multitude of ways.”
“One of the most glaring examples was failing to provide a $22 seatbelt on a ride that cost several million dollars to construct;” Crump noted in his statement filed on Monday. “From the ride and seat manufacturers; and the installer to the owners and operators; the defendants had more than enough chances to enact safeguards; such as seatbelts, that could have prevented Tyre’s death.”
