Amusement Park Incident

Rest in peace, Tyre Sampson.

Amusement Park Incident

Nataliyah Robinson, Sydney Ellis, Editor

Most of you all may have heard about the unfortunate event that occurred on Thursday, March 24. A young black male named Tyre Sampson lost his life due to his seat not being correctly secured on a free fall tower ride. Once the ride started, Tyre started to have suspicions of his safety. He had shared his concerns with his friends as the ride went up. Tyre was turned away from every ride except for this one. He was only 14 and on an innocent trip to Orlando Florida, with his friends for their spring break. This, unfortunately, was a good thing gone bad. Tyre did not make it off of that ride safely. I believe the operator did not do his job correctly as far as making sure the ride was safe and secure. I hope Sampson’s parents get the justice they deserve. It’s so sad that a life was lost due to negligence. This situation could’ve been 100% avoided.

Rest in peace Tyre Sampson.
