A video of a 14-year-old boy falling from the drop tower rollercoaster went viral recently. He plummets from 430 feet above, or the seventh or eighth floor.
It was too high and too far away to save a life. He fell on the ground, fractured several bones, and suffered significant injuries, so he couldn’t save him.
Police have identified him. Tyre Sampson. He was 14 years old. He and his pals went to ICON to enjoy the sights. In the park, he chose the risky but entertaining free-fall ride.
On the voyage, he notices the second seatbelt is unfastened. He asked the employee why the seatbelt didn’t click. Don’t worry, says the employee. The seatbelt remains. That was his blunder.
If the employee works on it, he may be saved. The employee ignored the warnings. If the employee takes proper safety precautions, he is still alive.
But cops take this matter seriously. They began their probe. Now they fine the firm. The sum is unknown. But it will know that a large sum was imposed on the corporation and must be paid in any circumstances. After the video became viral, many worldwide responses came.
The person who made the video claims that he put the video online to raise public awareness of safety problems so the corporation knows what is going on behind its back.
