Last night at 7:53pm. tragedy struck Ruby Pier. Eddie “Maintenance” murdered due to the oh-so-famous main attraction, Freddy’s Free Fall. The cause of the falling ride? A car key, or at least that’s what local witness, Raina Hein said she heard Eddie scream seconds before his fatal accident. Many people saw Eddie trying to save a little girl, who’s name shall not be released, that was dangling from the broken ride. In attempt to save that girl, Freddy’s Free Fall crushed Eddie. Eddie had been working as part of the maintenance crew at Ruby Pier for numerous decades, after serving the army alongside of Barney. He treated all of the customers and other employees at the Pier with warmth and generosity. He will forever be missed by many.
TRAGEDY STRIKES RUBY PIER!
We asked local witness and employee, who was, in fact, helping the dangling riders from off of the attraction, Willie, a few questions about the tragedy.

What were you doing during this tragic accident?
I saw Eddie running underneath Freddie's Free Fall and I just knew he couldn't make it out alive.
I thought, "No, Eddie! No!"
I was very devastated that we lost a good maitenance man.
For one, I have to do all of his work. It was very upsetting towards me, the other Ruby pier employees, and frequent customers.
Trying to stop the ride from falling, but I failed miserably.
We'll try our best but we're not sure that customers will want to ride the ride after it's fixed.
Freddy's Free Fall crushed him.
Eddie died trying to save the little girl.
On Eddie's 83rd birthday :(
To save the little girl.
