Jasmine Martinez: Six Flags Coaster to Blame for 10-Year-Old's Death?

By    |   Tuesday, 16 Jun 2015 03:31 PM

A Magic Mountain death is being investigated after 10-year-old Jasmine Martinez lost consciousness on the Revolution roller coaster at the Six Flags theme park in California last week.

After Martinez arrived at the ride station unconscious but still breathing on Friday, she was airlifted to a local hospital before her transfer to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the Los Angeles Times reported. She was pronounced dead the next day.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office determined on Tuesday that Martinez died from natural causes and not from any accident associated with the ride, although no further information pertaining to her health conditions has been released, according to ABC7.

The Revolution, which closed briefly after Martinez passed out but reopened later the same day, has now been temporarily closed until the incident is fully reviewed, the Times noted. The Magic Mountain website refers to the Revolution as “one of the most famous and iconic looping roller coasters in the world,” and says it was the first coaster to feature a 90-foot-tall full vertical loop.

More than 45 million people have safely gotten through the ride without any repercussions, according to CNN, and “there is no evidence to suggest that this was in any way ride-related” to the girl’s death, Six Flags Magic Mountain said in a statement.

This is not the first death that Magic Mountain has seen in its nearly 40 years of existence, however. According to MSN, a woman died in 2001 after exiting another roller coaster. Her subsequent autopsy revealed that she had suffered from the rupture of a pre-existing brain aneurism that could have been possibly affected by the stress and strain of the ride.

Although the parks garner roughly 350 injury reports per year, according to the Los Angeles Times, most of those complaints involve fainting, dizziness, and nausea, which are all natural responses for some people after riding a roller coaster.
