Teen girl dies on Rock n' Roller Coaster in Paris
A 14-girl Spanish girl died yesterday at Walt Disney Studios
theme park at Disneyland Paris.
The girl was found unconscious after riding the Rock n' Roller Coaster at the French theme park. Park employees attempted to revive the girl, but she was declared dead when an ambulance arrived.
French police are investigating and the ride remains closed.
The accident appears similar to an incident one year ago almost to the day on the Rock n' Roller Coaster at Disney-MGM Studios at Walt Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Then, a 12-year-old boy was declared dead after being found unconscious on the ride. The boy was later found to have a congenital heart defect.
I recently went to the Rock N' Roller Coaster in Orlando. It's a roller coaster much like Space Mountain. Hundreds of thousands of people ride it without any problems. I think that investigators will find that the girl had some medical condition and will then reopen the ride. It's just like the boy with the heart condition last year who died on the same ride in Orlando.
I agree. There is nothing inherently wrong with the atraction. Now had herfeet been chopped off... we might have a major lawsuit on our hands. Still... Condolences to the family!!!
Oh no! I will be going in less than a month!!
That's so sad!
I've been on that coaster many times, it's probably about the same intensity as the old black hole at Alton Towers with a corkscrew and induction launch.
This is sooo terrible. And its a young girl. How awful.
