I just have a simple theoretical question: What will those of you who are pretty much gauranteeing he had a pre-existing condition think if it turns out he didn't? So far, they haven't been able to find a reason for his death. So what then? I mean, were talking about a 4-year-old here. His body was far from fully developed, and it makes you wonder how much thought they really put into this technology and the effects it would have on small children (among others) who just happen to meet the height requirement.
I think it's a very real possibility that this attraction is simply dangerous for many people. And I don't just mean those with common health concerns. I have no known health conditions, felt perfectly fine prior to riding this attraction (and rode RnRC multiple times earlier in the day), yet I had serious trouble breathing for the duration of this ride once the G's kicked in. It was pushing down on my chest the entire time. I was unbearably sick for 3 hours. Keep in mind I have NEVER felt this way due to any other theme park attraction in my entire life, including roller coasters that pull more G's than this thing supposedly does. Which, right off the bat, must mean this thing is more dangerous than most roller coasters. Of course, many of you had no problem. But I simply don't think this attraction is safe for everyone who qualifies to ride it by being a measly 44 inches tall and free of obvious health concerns. If it turns out he didn't have anything wrong with him, this will be an example. He met the only requirement. I question the existance of technology used to train astronauts in a Disney theme park. This is the last ride I would be making that kind of gaurantee for. We can only wait and see.
