30-year-old Florida wrestler “Ryze” died Saturday after falling off a ride at an Orlando amusement park. A spokesman with Orange County Fire Rescue said Justin Honeycutt was an employee at Magical Midway on International Drive. He was working on the Star Flyers ride while the ride was closed for repairs. He was about 90 feet in the air when he fell about six feet.
Rescue crews found Honeycutt unconscious, suspended in the air by a safety harness. Firefighters had to use their own harnesses and cables to climb up, and then slowly lower the man down. Investigators are not yet sure why the worker fell. Magical Midway is now closed while an investigation is under way. Star Flyers is billed as “America’s only carousel on steroids.”
