The Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the boy died at the hospital.

It is believed the boy’s shoes were not properly secured, but an investigation is still ongoing.

Fox 35 Orlando reports:

A 14-year-old boy died after falling from a ride at Icon Park in Orlando on Thursday night. Eyewitnesses shared the video exclusively with FOX 35 just before his fall. The video has been edited due to its graphic nature.

Eyewitnesses at the scene told deputies that the boy fell from the Orlando Free Fall Ride, which stands 430 feet high. It is the tallest freestanding drop tower in the world.

Minister Williams told Fox 35 News that they saw something fall and at first thought it was part of the ride.

“We got a little closer and it was a man lying on the ground,” Williams said. “Everyone was panicking and screaming.”

Witnesses say the boy’s parents were terrified.
