  • Father of Boy Who Died on Disney Coaster Says Son Was in Good Health - AP, 6/30/06

    The father of a 12-year-old boy who died after riding a roller coaster at the Disney-MGM theme park told authorities his son was in good health and did not suffer from any medical conditions.

    Byron Russell noticed his son, Michael, became limp while they rode the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster along with his mother and 7-year-old brother Thursday morning.

    When the minute-long ride finished, Byron Russell pulled Michael off the ride and performed CPR until paramedics arrived, said Barbara Miller, Orange County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman.

    The boy was pronounced dead after he was taken by ambulance to Celebration Hospital, Disney said in a statement. The cause of death was not immediately determined and medical examiners planned to perform an autopsy Friday.

    "According to the family, he was a very healthy child," Miller said. "The father repeated that he was healthy, he had no problems."
