    German tourist died from bleeding of brain
    By Henry Pierson Curtis

    A German tourist who collapsed this week after riding the Mission: Space thrill ride at Walt Disney died from bleeding of the brain brought on high blood pressure, according to the Orange-Osceola Medical Examiner's Office.

    The autopsy of Hiltrud Blümel showed of "severe, long standing high blood pressure," Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Jan Garavaglia said in a statement released Friday afternoon. There were no signs of trauma, she said.

    The official cause and manner of death will not be determined for four to six weeks until results are obtained from tests on the victim's brain, other organs and blood, the doctor said.

    It is somewhat surprising that the resukts have been released so soon. When that young boy died last year, it was months before a cause of death was even hinted at. Seems like the cause must have been very obvious at this point.

    With the boy, immediate autopsy results were inconclusive & therefore, we had to wait the 5 months for the final results. Same thing with this case (we have to wait a few weeks to a few months for the final autopsy results), but initial results were conclusive.
