According to Florida officials, the safety harness worn by the teenager who died in an Orlando amusement park accident was still locked after the tragedy.

The new detail comes from an accident report that claims 14-year-old Tyre Sampson came out of his seat when “magnets engaged” during the free-fall ride’s rapid descent. The puzzling part is that Florida officials claim Tyre was wearing his safety helmet and it was still in a locked position when the ride ended. “

The report, first obtained from People, states that Tyre died of multiple injuries and trauma. “

As we previously reported, the terrifying incident happened last week when the Missouri teen fell from the “Orlando Free-Fall” ride, which stands 430 ft. tall.

The ride, which just opened in December, reportedly plummets at 75 mph.

Tyre’s family reportedly raised concerns that he was too large for the ride… or so they believe after reviewing the safety manual.

Officials are still investigating the tragedy.
