ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) --

A 77-year-old woman collapsed and died in December after riding the Prince Charming Regal Carousel in Walt Disney World.

The death was reported Sunday after the theme park filed a guest-injury report with state officials. Florida's big theme parks have an agreement with the state in which they report guest injuries in exchange for avoiding state ride-safety regulation.

The report indicated the woman had a pre-existing heart
condition.

Walt Disney World reported two other injuries. A 71-year-old
woman broke a hip and shoulder after riding the Magic Kingdom
carousel and a 76-year-old woman injured her leg after falling on a
moving platform for Epcot's The Seas with Nemo & Friends.

No other parks reported injuries.
