A 12-year-old girl was in the wave pool at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon when lifeguards noticed her lying on a ledge, out of the water. After indicating she was fine, she got up and collapsed. An autopsy has so far indicated that the cause of death was not from any kind of physical injury.

Now note, my condolences go out to her family but this isn't a story worthy of national news coverage.
I still feel bad for the family and am sorry they have to deal with this at the time they did.
Can I ask why it bothers you and others here that this story and others like it make cnn.com or other media websites? Is that not what the press does? It comes off as you're a bunch of angry PR reps for your local park who would rather this event get buried as to not dent the bottom line.
Besides, she didn't drown. Something happened to he while she was out of the water. The coroner said she didn't suffer any trauma or drown and has to do a more detailed autopsy to try and figure out how she died.
