Girls Dies After Collapsing At Disney Water Park

A 12-year-old girl from Virginia has died after collapsing at a Disney World water park Thursday.

The girl was in the wave pool at Typhoon Lagoon at about 6 p.m. when lifeguards noticed her lying on a ledge, out of the water, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said.

Lifeguards asked her if she was OK, and the girl told them she was, but then passed out when she stood up.

The lifeguards performed CPR until paramedics arrived. She was pronounced dead at a hospital a short time later.

In June, another child died at the theme park after riding Epcot's "Mission: Space," which simulates a shuttle ride to Mars. The cause of the 4-year-old boy's death remains under investigation.
