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.

It is hard sometimes to get caught up in the ridiculousness of the investigations and allegations about safety and forget that some poor family went on a dream vacation and lost a child on an attraction. I guess people even die at the happiest place on earth...

Unless someone got lose and hit the girl during the ride, I bet she had some kind of pre-existing condition.
Disney parks and rides seem to attract so many deaths from kids with illnesses... Maybe they should stop sending sick kids there?
