Girl, 4, Dies After Collapsing At Epcot

A 4-year-old girl died Tuesday after collapsing on a ride at Disney World’s Epcot ‘95 amusement park.

Linda Elaine Baker of Galveston, Texas, was flown to Orlando Regional Medical Center after fainting on Body Wars, a jarring ride that simulates a trip into the human body.

The cause of death was not immediately known.

Children over 3 are allowed on the sometimes bumpy motionsimulator ride, which opened in October 1989.
