A colleague of the Florida amusement park worker who fell to his death during a safety check of a 450-foot ride called 911 after the deadly fall, telling dispatchers “there’s quite a lot of blood down there,” authorities said.
The worker who was also climbing the mammoth StarFlyer attraction at ICON Park in Orlando – billed as the world’s tallest swing ride – called 911 early Monday after Jacob David Kaminsky, 21, plummeted up to 60 feet during a daily inspection, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
“He fell a little ways,” the worker told a dispatcher. “There’s quite a lot of blood down there … He’s not moving right now. He was moving a minute ago.”
The worker, who was roughly 10 feet above Kaminsky when he fell, said he was still “halfway up the tower” when he called for help, according to the report.
The unidentified colleague also told coworkers on the ground to start getting help for Kaminsky,
