Man dies after falling from Icon Park's Starflyer attraction”

Orange County Fire Rescue tweeted that firefighters responded to the Orlando StarFlyer ride early Monday after receiving a report that the 21-year-old man had fallen.

Kaminsky reportedly fell when he was about 200 feet up the ride's tower shortly before 8 a.m.

Rescue climbers were able to remove the victim, along with another worker who was uninjured, and take him to a hospital, officials said.

The ride, located in Orlando's ICON Park, has been closed until further notice, WKMG News 6 reported.

The StarFlyer ride opened at the Orlando theme park in 2018, where it is billed as "sky high safety" combined with "450-feet thrills".

"It's a shock and we're saddened by it", Stine said.

John Stine, director of sales and marketing for StarFlyer, told Fox 35 that the attraction undergoes daily safety and maintenance inspections, which was the case this morning.

StarFlyer officials did not immediately return PEOPLE's request for comment. "It's extremely sad. But we're holding up and supporting each other", he added.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Orange County Sheriff's Office are conducting the investigation.
