Moreover, the death of Sampson made headlines across the country. On Mar 24, the honor student and high school football player went to ICON Park in Orlando for spring break with his team. Sampson and his friends rode the FreeFall ride, which ascended 400 feet before launching 75 mph. A video that has become viral shows Sampson flying off of the ride during its descent. He’s also shown hitting the ground in front of stunned people.

Tyre’s Death Raises Some Questions

“He was panicking when he was going up,” Tyre’s father, Yarnell Sampson, told Fox35 Orlando. “When the ride took off, that’s when he was feeling uncomfortable. He was like, ‘What’s going on?’ That’s when he started freaking out, and he was explaining to his friend next to him, ‘I don’t know man. If I don’t make it down, please tell my Mom and Daddy I love them.’ For him to say something like that, he must have felt something.”

Furthermore, Yarnell says his son couldn’t get on other rides due to his size (6’5″, 340 pounds).

“This one particular ride said, ‘We can take you, come on! Get on!’” Yarnell told the news outlet. “No one else allowed him to get on the ride, so I’m wondering what happened between now and then that made them say, ‘Come on, get this ride!'”

According to reports, the Sampson family hired attorneys to investigate his death. This story is heartbreaking! Our thoughts are with Tyre’s family at this trying time as we send them our sincere prayers.
