Manual Adjustments Played Roll in Fatal Orlando Incident

New developments in the fatal Orlando FreeFall incident have surfaced. A forensic investigation determined that ‘manual adjustments’ contributed to the incident in which 14 year old Tyre Sampson died late last month. The forensic company that was hired to investigate the incident, determined that the operator of the Orlando FreeFall ride made manual adjustments to the ride’s harness sensor that rendered it ‘unsafe.’ The adjustments allowed the harness’ restraint opening to be 7 inches which is almost double that of normal restraints to allow larger people to fit on the ride. According to authorities, there are ‘many other potential contributing factors that may have played a role in the incident’ and the department is continuing their investigation. An operating manual for the ride states the maximum passenger weight is 286 pounds, Sampson weighed 340 according to his family.
