Tyre Sampson should still be alive, and his family will announce in a press conference around 11:30 am in St. Louis that they are going to sue the Theme Park, the Owner for the wrongful death of their son.
Tyre Sampson’s mother Nekia Dodd is supposed to talk to the media for the first time, along with Michael Haggard from the Taggard Law Firm.
Sampson, 14 died on March 24th in Orlando, Florida after falling from the largest FreeFall ride in the world, standing more than 425 feet high.
The safety harness was allowed to remain open during the ride compared the other seats around him, according to an investigation. The family should have a very easy win in this lawsuit, but they will never get their baby back.
Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner Nikki Fried announced primary findings in the investigation into Sampson’s death. That preliminary report detailing the circumstances surrounding the death of Sampson concluded that the teen slipped from his seat on the Orlando FreeFall because someone manually adjusted a safety sensor.
Please keep the family and friends of Tyre in your prayers. He is gone way too soon.
