Hey there guys and gals Anonymouse here. Reporting to you the best in Disney News & Gossip.
I read this news story over the weekend and while it was very sad, I hope that the lady is ok.
The popular Walt Disney World ride was shut down after a the 48-year-old woman was rushed to the hospital, according to a Disney spokeswoman.The guest was riding Space Mountain, an indoor roller coaster attraction in the Magic Kingdom section of the theme park, and was not responding when the ride came to an end, said spokeswoman Andrea Finger.
A Disney employee called for help and Reedy Creek Emergency Services sent rescue workers to the scene around 11:30 a.m. Saturday.The woman was breathing on her own and transported to Dr. P. Phillips Hospital in stable condition, said Bo Jones, assistant chief for Reedy Creek.“That means she wasn’t getting any better or wasn’t getting any worse,” Jones said.
Disney released a statement that reads: “Our thoughts and concerns are with the guest and her family. We have sent a representative to the hospital to assist them with their needs.”
You have to understand that Space Mountain is a Roller Coaster and while not as intense as Rock-n-Roller Coaster it still can be a strain on your body. I wish I had a picture of a the sign that says not to ride if your pregnant or have a heart condition.
So please be careful everyone. Chip has asked me to recommend this article to you to make sure you stay in peak physical health at Walt Disney World. 5 Disney World Planning Tips for Health Conscious Visitors. If I have to hear him talk about P90X or Insanity Workout one more time I am gonna scream.
Anywho keep rocking those Roller Coasters, Take Your Vitamins, Eat Right, and see you at Walt Disney World.
P.S. – Space Mountain was inspected and reopened after a few hours so everything is a O.K now. Thanks to our facebook fans for pointing out that I forgot to include that!
