The grieving father of the 14-year-old boy who fell to his death from Orlando’s 430ft ICON drop ride is demanding answers about his son’s death.
Tyre Sampson who hailed from Missouri had tragically died from the free-fall ride based in Orlando on Thursday, leaving his family in shock and numb with grief.
Now, the victim’s father, Yarnell Sampson is demanding authorities some answers in relation to the horrifying incident.
“I want everyone to tell me why my son is dead and inside a white body bag”- the heartbroken father explained.
Moreover, he also shed light upon his sudden and uneventful death, which he found out about through social media.
“I wish I was there to tell my son that I loved him so much. I want him to know that I am sorry that he had to lose his life this way. He did not deserve it, nobody deserves it”- the grief-stricken dad continued.
The heartbroken father also stated that he wished it was him instead of his son, adding how loving and caring he was.
Now, the family is calling the amusement park out for its recklessness while demanding authorities investigate the shocking incident that could affect others, similar to the way that it affected theirs.
For this reason, they have come forward with a petition that demands the ride’s permanent closure.
The petition was reportedly launched by his cousin named Shay Johnson, which has already managed to garner hundreds of signatures from those who visited the victim’s recently held memorial service.
Sources revealed how the victim plummeted to his death at 75mph and landed on the floor beside the ride. The horrifying incident was witnessed by his friend’s family last Thursday.
