Attorneys Ben Crump and Bob Hilliard have been hired on retainer by the family of Tire Sampson, who fell to his death from the Orlando Free Fall ride late Thursday night.A joint release from Ben Crump Law and Hilliard Martinez Gonzales announced the family’s separate retainment of the attorneys. Tire Sampson fell from the ride Thursday night, and the incident is still under investigation by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.Attorney Ben Crump has been hired by Yarnell Sampson, Tyre’s father. Crump said in a statement, “this family is shocked and heartbroken at the loss of their son. This young man was the kind of son every parent hopes for — an honor roll student, an aspiring athlete, and a kind-hearted person who cared about others. Needless to say, his family is absolutely devastated. A fun theme park visit with his football team should not have ended in tragedy. Bob Hilliard and I, on behalf of both parents, Yarnell and Neki, intend to get answers for Tyre’s grieving family and request prayers as they shoulder this unthinkable loss.”Tyre’s mother, Nekia Dodd, has hired attorney Bob Hilliard. Hilliard said in a statement, “Families have a right to expect these national theme parks, making millions of dollars, will keep their children safe and will put that safety above all else. Every parent who sees this horrific video can’t help but think the same thing, ‘That could have been my child.’ What unimaginable terror did 14-year-old Tire experience as he slipped out of his unsecured harness and fell helplessly towards his own death?”Tyre Sampson was visiting Orlando on a trip from Missouri. His father spoke out publicly on Friday afternoon. “It felt like somebody hit me so hard in my stomach. I just lost, I lost, lost wind. And the pain behind it could never be taken away, and sorry’s not gonna take it back and no monies, no nothing in the world to replace the young man. And it’s just sad, a young man’s bright future was taken away from him over a ride, an amusement park,” Yarnell Sampson said. ICON Park, where the Free Fall ride is located, is the site where another person died in September 2020. A worker fell about 50 feet to his death from the StarFlyer attraction.
