  • Autopsy on child who collapsed, died in Disney wave pool - Sun-Sentinel 08/05/05

    Autopsy on child who collapsed, died in Disney wave pool indicates no trauma

    ORLANDO -- Jerra Kirby, the 12-year-old girl who collapsed while visiting Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Thursday and died, did not suffer a physical injury before her death, according to an autopsy conducted this morning.

    The autopsy "revealed no signs of trauma," said Steve Hanson, chief investigator of the District 9 Medical Examiner's Office, covering Orange and Osceola counties.

    "The cause of death is pending additional testing," Hanson said. "There was nothing that stood out as being the cause of death, anatomically. She didn't die from physical injury. That's what trauma is."

    It could now take four to six weeks or more to conduct the more sophisticated testing required to determine the cause of death, Hanson said.

    Jerra died after passing out at the wave pool at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon. She was with a group of relatives from Newport News, Va. It was the third time in three months that a young person has suddenly fallen critically ill while visiting Disney.

    Florida's chief investigator for rides and attractions said today that Walt Disney World reported the death of a 12-year-old girl to the state because of the "serious nature" of the incident, but the Bureau of Fair Rides Inspection likely will not investigate.

    "From all we know at the moment it does not appear to be ride related," said Allan Harrison, chief investigator. The agency inspects water parks along with fairs and small attractions, but Disney and other major parks are exempt by state law, Harrison said.
