2 People Died After Riding Disney World Rides in 2014

Officials say two people died on Disney World rides during the last quarter of 2014.

According to a report released Wednesday by the Florida Bureau of Fair Rides, a 22-year-old woman with a pre-existing condition lost consciousness on Christmas Day while riding It's a Small World. She later died. The report also says a 54-year-old woman lost consciousness while riding Toy Story Midway Mania at Disney's Hollywood Studios in October.

The Orlando Sentinel reports Disney officials say the rides were operating normally when the incidents happened.

The state releases reports of injuries associated with rides at major theme parks each quarter. The reports are part of an agreement between the state and theme parks, which are exempt from public regulation.

Disney reported nine other incidents and Universal Orlando reported five.
