Girl, 14, Dies On Ride At Disneyland Paris

PARIS -- The death of a 14-year-old Spanish girl after a Disney ride is under investigation in France.

Disneyland Paris officials said the girl lost consciousness while riding a roller coaster.

The cause of the girl's death remains unclear. A preliminary inspection of the Rock'n'Roller Coaster ride found no malfunctions with the machinery.

The girl boarded the ride on Monday at the theme park east of the French capital, and when the ride stopped, her friends found her unconscious.

Medical teams at the theme park tried to revive her, but by the time the ambulance arrived, the girl had died.

Police have opened an investigation, and an autopsy is planned Tuesday.

The ride is shut down.
