I've heard some rumors that she had an eating problem. Hmmm...

Yeah but how is it overreacting if she was sent to the hospital with cardiac arrest?

^ Agreed. You can't exactly fake cardiac arrest. But, there are two kinds of medical issues that you have to look at...

#1... Did she have a known, pre-existing medical condition that, despite the warnings, she chose to ride anyway and the forces- or even her own anxiety-of the ride set her condition off, or

#2... Did she have an unknown medical condition and between (just thinking about the typical Disney trip here) the overseas travel, high temperatures, humidity, being tired, excited, etc did that trigger her to become ill?

I think we all pretty much agree that when tens of thousands of people of all ages and sizes ride this ride (and others like it) without incident each year, the chances that "THE RIDE" caused her illness are not likely. Otherwise people would be keeling over every day. Her body's response to the ride could be at fault, but neither Disney nor the ride manufacturer can be held responsible for that.

It'll never stop me!

I hope it stays opened. I'm 14 and I've never been to Disney World. :cry:

Did not!

Child Dies after riding Rock n Rollercoaster.

Postby Robgraves » Thu Jun 29, 2006 11:43 am

Just saw pop up on local news here in Orlando that a Child died while on RnR. I'm gonna call and see if anyone in Sunset knows what happened.... The local newshounds are already jumping on it as another "is Disney/Rollercoasters safe" story.

Yeah I just saw it on the news a couple minutes ago. Its pretty sad to hear that. They showed MGM studios and I was shocked. It was my first looping roller coaster and I couldn't belive it. I feel very sorry for the parents.

The boy was declared dead en route to an Celebration Hospital. The rescue call came in this morning about 11:30 a.m.

Minor mistake, but I don't think 'an' was needed, and was used incorrectly.

The coaster, known for its fast start and pulsating Aerosmith soundtrack, is the second-fastest ride at Disney, with a top speed of 57 mph. According to the Disney Web site, "This attraction pulls between 4 and 5 big, fat, monster Gs. Space shuttle astronauts, by comparison, experience 3 Gs at liftoff.''

Something is wrong there, I know something is, but I can't put my finger in it.

The fastest ride at Disney is Epcot's Test Track, which can reach a speed of 65 mph.

I don't think that has to do with anything here.

That's all I see

But that's awful news to hear, regardless.
