Teenager dies at Disneyland Paris
French police are investigating the mysterious death of a 14-year-old girl who lost consciousness while riding on a roller coaster at Disneyland Paris.

The Spanish teenager's friends noticed she was unconscious when the RockNRoller Coaster ride had stopped.

Medical teams at the theme park tried to revive her but by the time an ambulance arrived, the girl had died.

A preliminary inspection of the roller coaster found no machinery malfunction, but the ride remains closed.

Disneyland spokesman Pieter Boterman said the ride would not reopen until the cause of the girl's death was determined.

The ride is at the Walt Disney Studios Park in Marne-la-Vallee, east of the French capital.
