Tyre Sampson Death: Was a Florida Teen’s Size a Factor in His Death?

Tyre Sampson, a rising middle school football star from Missouri, was killed when he fell from a towering amusement ride in Florida. He was only 14 years old but was already 6 feet 5 inches tall and weighed more than 300 pounds. His family’s attorneys are investigating whether or not his size, or any other reasons, had a role in his death.

“This young man, he was athletic and he was imposing in stature. Bob Hilliard, a Texas attorney who represented Tyre’s mother, Nekia Dodd, said in an interview on Saturday that he had no way of knowing what had happened. According to the expert, “a lack of monitoring and training will be a contributing factor to this.” “It was a simple case of negligence.”

In the early hours of Thursday night, Sampson fell out of his seat from a 430-foot, free-fall amusement park ride that is taller than the Statue of Liberty on a busy street in the heart of Orlando’s tourist district, not far from Disney World. On Saturday, investigators continued to look into what happened.

After reaching that height, the ride tilts so that riders face the ground for a brief while before plummeting to the ground at speeds of up to 75 mph (121 kilometres per hour) or more.

Tyre Sampson’s father, Yarnell Sampson, is represented by well-known civil rights attorney Ben Crump, who claimed the family is “shocked and heartbroken” over Tyre’s death. Crump is working with Hilliard and represents Tyre’s father.

According to Crump, “This young man was the kind of son everyone wishes for — an honour roll student who aspired to be a professional athlete and a kind-hearted person who cared about others.”

In addition to stating that the investigation is underway, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, which oversees amusement rides in all but the major theme parks, declined to comment on Saturday.

The Orlando FreeFall ride, which is located at Icon Park, has been suspended indefinitely, according to a statement from the attraction. It says it is completely working with investigators. It debuted in late 2017 on International Drive, which is a popular tourist attraction.

The incident that claimed the life of one of our guests has left us heartbroken. “On behalf of the SlingShot Group, which manages the ride, we express our heartfelt condolences and sincerest sympathies to his family and friends.”

Tyre was a behemoth for his age, already the size of an offensive tackle in the National Football League. His family claims that he aspired to play professional football, as do many other children with athletic aptitude who saw professional football as a chance to provide for their mother and raise everyone in the family to a higher level.

According to his stepmother Wendy Wooten, who spoke to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “that was his dream, and he was on his way.” “There were a lot of scouts looking at him.” He has the potential to be a fantastic football player.”

Tyre was a member of a football club called the St. Louis Bad Boyz, which was in Orlando for a weeklong training camp, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper. The party was accompanied by chaperones and appeared to be doing what hundreds of thousands of people do every year during spring break in Orlando: enjoying the amusement parks and rides.

At the time, he was a student at the City Garden Montessori School, located in St. Louis, Missouri. A note to parents was sent out by the school on Friday, informing them that therapy will be provided for children on Monday.

In a statement from its principal and chief executive officer, the school stated Tyre had been a student for many years at the institution. His family and friends have our heartfelt condolences during this terribly difficult time. “We will miss him tremendously,” says the group.

Although no criminal charges have been filed, it appears that a wrongful death or negligence case, or possibly both, will be filed. Crump stated that the boy’s parents “want to find answers for Tyre’s devastated family” through the legal system.

According to Crump, “what should have been a delightful theme park excursion with his football team should not have ended in tragedy.”
