New details have been released after the tragic death of a 14 years old boy. He fell from an amusement ride in Orlando, Florida.
Authorities shared the details of the tragic accident of a teenage boy who fell from an amusement park ride.
He was rushed to Arnold Palmer Hospital, but unluckily he died as a result of his injuries.
A video that was shared, revealed the concern of the passengers with the seat belts before going up.
The disturbing images were broadcasted on The Today Show. This free-standing drop tower takes all riders up to 430 feet.
You can hear one operator yelling at a passenger to check his seatbelt.
This is not the first time that park experienced such a tragedy. In 2020, an employee died after falling from the StarFlyer.
The ride will remain closed indefinitely.
The teenager’s father is speaking with Fox 35 about the tragic event.
The father explained that he was on the ride with his two best friends and was panicking when he was going up.
He knew something bad was going to happen. He said to his friend as he was starting to freak out, ‘I don’t know man, but if I don’t make it down, please tell my Mom and Daddy I love them.’
He was tall and a big boy, so many rides won’t even let him get on, but this particular ride said we can take you, get on.
This should never ever happen to anyone else and I am doing everything I can so this never happens again.
According to the manual of the ride, the weight limit was about 287 pounds, and the 14 years old weighed about 325 pounds.
The manual instructed to not let large guests that do not fit into the seat ride. The family lawyer wants to know if negligence contributed to his death.
The ride passed the safety check in December 2021.
