A 10-year-old-girl who was rushed to the hospital from Six Flags Magic Mountain last week died on Saturday, according to the L.A. County Coroner’s Office. The cause of death has yet to be determined.
On Friday, the young girl was at the Los Angeles County theme park, and had just walked off the Revolution roller coaster when she collapsed to the ground just outside the exit line. According to first responders, the Ventura County 10-year-old girl was found to be breathing, but still unconscious at the time. Afterwards, she was quickly airlifted to the hospital.
The same day, the amusement park released a statement explaining that the girl, “returned to the Revolution station after riding and was found breathing but unconscious.” Information regarding the reason why she collapsed has yet to be released. An autospy for the 10-year-old girl is scheduled for Monday.
The Revolution ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Los Angeles County, California, is a massive roller coaster that features a 90-foot high vertical loop. Speeds on the ride reach upwards of 55 miles per hour. The ride was not shut down following the incident.
