Report: Woman Died After Riding Disney Ride
ORLANDO (CBS4) – An elderly woman with a pre-existing heart condition died in December after riding the Prince Charming Regal Carousel in Walt Disney World.
The Orlando Sentinel reported the 77-year-old woman’s death Sunday after the theme park filed a guest-injury report with state officials.
Florida’s big theme parks have an agreement with the state in which they report guest injuries in exchange for avoiding state ride-safety regulation.
Walt Disney World also reported two other injuries. A 71-year-old woman broke a hip and shoulder after riding the Magic Kingdom carousel and a 76-year-old woman injured her leg after falling on a moving platform for Epcot’s The Seas with Nemo & Friends.
No other parks reported injuries.
