Very sad. The worst part about a young person suffering this kind of thing (aside from the obvious medical implications) is that it will be a platform for the likes of Ed Markey to go on about how "unsafe" the rides are and that they need federal inspections, neither of which would have prevented this girl's condition.

And to think they're half a world away from home on vacation. My prayers go out to the family.

Did they ever figure out what happened to that kid on Mission Space? That story still haunts me. Did this girl have any medical conditions? That story didn't say.
