I am watching Fox News just now and they did a quick thing about WDW maybe about 15 seconds, but as usual they did the neative image of amusement parks. All they said is that another child died at WDW making it 9 deaths since 2003. they never said what caused this death of this child or any of the other people. They simply left it at 9 people in 3 years have died.

And then, one news said he got off ill then went to the hosp and died there.
Another said he died on the way.
Then my local news said he came into the station unconsious and was pronounced dead before getting to the hospital.
Now which one is it?

The first problem is that you watched television news.
The second problem is that you chose Fox News.

Faux news? What do you expect?

I no longer watch any News Programs on Television. All they show is the same "If it Bleeds it Leads" Politics-Infested Type of news Morning, Noon, and Night. If I am going somewhere where I know there will be a Waiting Period (Read Doctors Offices, Airport Waiting Lounges and the like I'll bring my IPOD so I can "Tune Out" their Spew.

Fox News is no better or worse than CNN, MSNBC or anyone else. They are all driven by the need to get ratings, not the need to deliver accurate, unbiased news.

My wife and I can't watch the local news in the Cleveland area anymore. For those who take the news as gospel around here they'd think that the world is coming to an end and there's creeps everywhere.

Here's the latest from Yahoo news...
Seems there was a congenital heart defect.

Sad nonetheless... :(
Let's just say for the sake of argument that "in the olde days" (you know, back when *I* was a kid) that people did more PHYSICALLY than they do these days. Back then, you'd have had your aneurysm or heart attack or whatnot, but it would MOST likely have happened ploughing the fields or harvesting the crops or chopping firewood or something. NOW, we sit on our office chairs and *work* at the computer, the only times our bodies get a real "workout" is from the adrenaline rush of a thrillride...or falling in love...either way, it's stressful!

Congenital heart defect? How serious? Which one?
I've been cleared by my doctors to ride rides, play sports, etc. since I have a "congenital heart defect." That can be such a broad term to be used in any case.
It would be interesting to find out what he had to make others aware to get checked.
Yikes, after reading the Yahoo article that Coasterbuzzer linked that is indeed sad. The family had no idea that their son had a heart defect. My prayers are with them.
