The report indicated the woman had a pre-existing heart condition before she rode the Prince Charming Regal Carousel.
The park reported two other injuries in the fourth quarter of last year. A 71-year-old woman broke a hip and shoulder after being on the ride and a 76-year-old woman injured her leg after falling on a moving platform for another ride.
