Holiday World guest has medical issue on ride

Holiday World & Splashin' Safari

Earlier this evening, a female Guest returned to the station of The Voyage roller coaster unresponsive. Holiday World EMTs arrived three minutes later and immediately began to render first aid. The Guest was transported via ambulance to Memorial Hospital in Jasper, Indiana. At this point, the Guest’s name has not been released.
A full inspection of the roller coaster has been performed, and it was determined that the ride operated as it was intended to.
The ride remained closed for the evening out of respect for the family.
Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari officials ask for your thoughts and prayers for the Guest and her family, as well as for Team Members who were onsite.

To make things perfectly clear here, this happened on Friday. The ride was able to re-open for the rest of the event on Saturday.
And my understanding is that the lady didn’t make it, succumbing to her injury. Sadly.

Injury - as in injured on the coaster?

Well, she was on the coaster and came back unconscious. In a post her son said she got “knocked out” or “whiplash”, which is clearly observation not a medical opinion. I believe he’s young.
There’s been no word that I know of as to what really happened. Perhaps I should have said injury or illness, because we do not know.
