Woman Dies After Riding Prince Charming Regal Carousel

If the above headline is something you expect for a more thrilling ride, like say Mission:Space, don’t worry. The 77-year old woman died of a pre-existing heart condition after riding the recently renamed carousel. State safety officials won’t be requiring lap bars for the horses just yet. On the other hand the carousel was also the scene of a busted hip on a 71-year old woman. So who knows?

Those two injuries were among the 24 reported by Disney World for all of 2010. I don’t know about you, but I see that many EMTs in the parks myself. So something is getting under reported here. Disney is still reporting better that the other theme parks in this voluntary process.
