Update: Preliminary Autopsy results indicate a pre-existing condition in the child.
Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith reopened with the rest of the Disney-MGM Studios themepark this morning. A ride inspection was completed last night and found nothing wrong with the attraction or its operation. State inspectors were there to observe Disney staff in the inspection.
A 12 year old boy with no reported health problems was unresponsive after riding the thrilling high g-force indoor roller coaster yesterday and died after attempts at resuscitation failed. My deepest condolences to the family of the child and the cast members who witnessed the event.
