Records show that a woman died after riding Walt Disney World’s Space Mountain this past summer

The Orlando Sentinel reports that 55-year-old Pamela Lynn Haynes of Kingsport, Tennessee, lost consciousness after getting off the ride in July. A report recently filed with the state of Florida says the woman was taken to a nearby hospital, where she died.

The Orange-Osceola Medical Examiner’s Office reports that Haynes died of cardiopulmonary arrest and septic shock. A doctor said she had a history of high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Haynes’ death was included in a quarterly report theme parks are required to submit to the state. The report was made public this week.
