In a terribly unfortunate accident over the holiday weekend, Devon Staples, a retired actor for Disney World, killed himself. He had attempted to launch a firework off his head and was killed instantly.
"Apparently he thought it was a great idea. His friends said they thought they had dissuaded him from doing it, and the next thing they knew, he ignited the fireworks and he was killed instantly," stated a spokesperson from the State's Department of Public Safety.
Devon's brother Cody said, "There was no rushing him to the hospital. There was no Devon left when I got there."
Cody also later said, "Anyone who would want to give a tribute to Devon should go out and do something nice for someone. Show some love to someone you don’t know. That kid was all about showing people love."
Devon's mother, Kathleen, said, "That would've been suicide. I can't see a happy boy wanting to destroy himself."
