Girl Critical After Riding Disney's 'Tower Of Terror' Ride (WDW) - WKMG, 7/12/05
A 16-year-old girl is in critical condition after riding the "Twilight Zone Tower Of Terror" ride at Disney-MGM Studios at Walt Disney World, according to Local 6 News.
Officials said a girl from Britain exited the ride Tuesday at about 9:50 a.m. and complained that she was not feeling well, Local 6 News reported.
She sat down with her mother in the theme park but her condition continued to worsen, an Orange County Sheriff's spokesman said.
Disney medics came out and treated her and she was transported to Celebration Hospital where she was unresponsive, Local 6 News learned.
Orange County Sheriff's Office will be investigating.
In June, a 4-year-old boy died after passing out while aboard Walt Disney World's "Mission: Space" attraction -- an Epcot ride that has caused previous concerns because of its intensity.
On the ride, guests are seated aboard a freight elevator that glides through hotel passageways.
The elevator enters a pitch-black shaft and launches guests skyward unexpectedly. The vehicle then drops 13 stories.
