Today in hip hop news YK Osiris offered to pay the funeral expenses for the tragic death of the 14 year old boy, which took place in Orlando, Florida.
Tyree Sampson, from Missouri, went on the free fall ride in Orlando when his family decided to take a trip to a widely known theme park.
Videos have been released with camera footage showing the young boy, as he was not strapped in all the way. His harness was above his stomach, when it should have been below. The shoulder straps were also far away from his shoulders as the other kids were snug.
The owner of the ride said that all harnesses must be locked in order for the ride to take off, however that is clearly a lie.
This story has received tons of attention.
Yk Osiris seemed to be touched, and he took to his Instagram story to tell the 14 year old’s family that he would cover the funeral expenses.
Tyree’a father especially is heartbroken, as he said “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 money, 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.”
