A 35-year-old woman fell and lost consciousness after getting off Mission: Space at Epcot on Monday night, authorities said.
The woman, who was described only as a "local," was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center about 8:30 p.m. by the hospital's helicopter in "serious, improving condition" authorities said.
By 11:30 p.m., Disney World officials said the woman was being "treated and released."
The woman had been getting off Epcot's 3-year-old spaceflight-simulator ride and talking to bystanders when she "fell from a standing position," hit her head and was briefly unconscious, said Deputy Chief Bo Jones of the Reedy Creek Fire Department. It's unclear why she fell, Jones said.
When rescue crews arrived, she had regained consciousness but was not completely alert and had tingling in her arms and hands, Jones said.
An ORMC helicopter landed on a pad behind The Land Pavilion at Epcot. Jones said rescue workers reported that she was becoming more alert and regaining sensation in her arms and hands as she was being flown to the hospital.
