The coroner says that the death of Pearl Santos, who suffered an aneurysm and died while riding Goliath at Six Flags Magic Mountain, was not the result of any malfunction of the ride. The aneurysm she had was a pre-existing condition that "can fatally rupture due to a number of common stresses, including arguments, physical exertion or the experience of excitement or fear." The ride is currently open to the public.
