ORLANDO (CBS4) – A bit of a scare at Walt Disney World on Saturday after a woman was found unconscious at the end of a ride on Space Mountain.

Bo Jones, assistant chief for Reedy Creek Emergency Services, says the 48-year old woman was not responsive but breathing on her own Saturday morning. Rescuers were able to stabilize and transport her to Doctor Phillips Hospital.

Jones says there did not appear to be any trauma associated with the incident and was likely the result of a medical condition.  The ride reopened mid-morning on Sunday.

Three people have died after riding Space Mountain or soon after; all three had pre-existing health conditions.

Space Mountain is a rollercoaster type ride. Disney states riders should be in good health and not suffering from high blood pressure, heart or other problems.

    In an un related story; legislators in Tallahassee were found without a conscience.

    700,000 jobs in 7 years is a political scam. Florida will create jobs whether Rick Scott does anything at all. He can help but do not be fooled he’s responsible for the job growth. To date: all I see is losses. 1,400 teachers are the latest victims. Instead of teaching your kids math, they’ll be a McDonalds serving fries.
