A 12-year-old girl collapsed at a Disney World water park Thursday and later died, authorities said. The girl was in the wave pool at Typhoon Lagoon at about 6 p.m. when lifeguards noticed her lying on a ledge, out of the water, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said.

Lifeguards asked her if she was OK, and the girl told them she was, but then passed out when she stood up. The lifeguards performed CPR until paramedics arrived. She was pronounced dead at a hospital a short time later.

Wow what horrible luck for Disney. For the exception of the roller coaster incident, it looks like the rides or attractions were NOT to blame...what's going on with kids nowadays? Do they have the bodies of an 80 year old?

If you have a Miami Herald login it will work. Or just use bugmenot.com to get a login.

Here's another quote that answers your guys questions:

They said she had no known medical problems, the sheriff's office said.

Her name was being withheld until her parents in Virginia were notified. An autopsy was planned.

Maybe a heat stroke?

Kids need to be better supervised. They don't know when to stop and get a drink. It's really sad. Whatever happend to the good old "Check in every thirty minutes with your buddy at the big blue bucket?"

I was just there this past weekend and i kept thinking about those kids and keeping an eye on my own. We had a great time. Havent been there in 22 yrs, wife hasnt been there in 19 and my kids (14,9) have never been there.

Tragic situation.
