Jacob David Kaminsky, 21, was killed after plunging from the StarFlyer, Florida's tallest tourist attraction that is billed as the world's tallest swing ride, while performing a routine safety check, according to multiple reports.

A 21-year-old theme park worker who fell nearly 200 feet from the StarFlyer swing ride in Orlando, Florida, has died.

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

Just before 8 a.m., rescue crews responded to the StarFlyer attraction at ICON Park, NBC affiliate WESH reported.

As of early afternoon, the name of the deceased has not been made public pending the notification of next of kin. "Any time there is an injury or something of this nature, it's extremely sad".
