I'm really very suprised that I havent seen anything posted about the recent death at PKI. Does anyone have any input or information on this. I personally know nothing more than the simple fact that something caused a female to die after riding a thrill ride, as local media worded it in a 11 news teaser.

Yes, it is true. It happened on Top Gun today when a lady had a heart attack on the ride. She had the unknown pre-existing condition of an enlarged heart. No name. And please no speculation. All that is fact.

The woman (Mother of Four) Was determined to have died from a heart attack. Autopsy revieled that she was suffering from a enlarged heart and also had high blood pressure. Both conditions she may not have known she had.

Chuck, who will give a link to the story when he finds one because I think the incident happened last friday.

I do believe it happened last week... since the ride was closed down for a few days for no apparent reason.

It doesn't seem like the family is (at this point) even considering blaming King's Island. Guess that's a step in the right direction ...

Feel bad for the kid especially - he's gonna be scarred ...

"Day Of Fun Turns Deadly At Local Amusement Park",
what a muck raking headline!

Fortunately the article was more objective, but most people probably only absorbed the headline. Heats attacks happen all the time. Every once in a while the person happens to be on a coaster. Yes the stress and excitement of the ride might be the immediate trigger, but in all probability something else would have triggered the heart attack soon.

But this wasn't an accident. Just a result of sub-par health.

How sad, It sure makes you think. With a history of health concerns I get on and don't even think about things like this happening. How sad for the little boy beside her.
