Mother of Tyre Sampson the Star Football Player killed in Amusement Park Ride in Orlando reach Settlement

Tyre Sampson had the dreams of playing in the National Football League, and he was on his way to becoming a star. The massive 14-year-old fell to his death at an Orlando, Florida Amusement Park called Icon Park last year.

Today, the Mother of Tyre was able to reach a settlement with the Amusement Park, according to reports.

Sampson’s Mother filed a wrongful death lawsuit with Icon Park and the Ride’s Operator, and she was able to win an undisclosed amount.

The park will also tear down the ride.

If you remember correctly, Sampson died after slipping out of his seat while on the Orlando FreeFall Ride back on March 24, 2022. Sampson fell more than 100 feet to his death. The star football player had a bright future as a top-rated offensive lineman in the 8th grade.

His Mother plans to use her settlement to “keep my son’s legacy alive” by giving back to community sports and schools.

Please bless the family of this young man.
