Disney World Hospitalization

Disney World has reopened the ride "Twilight Zone Tower of Terror," a day after a British girl almost died after riding it.

Leanne Deacon is still in critical condition after suffering cardiac arrest minutes after leaving the ride. It depicts a haunted elevator that plunges more than 100 feet.

Disney invited an official from Florida's Bureau of Fair Rides and Exhibitions to monitor last night's inspection of the ride. Florida's major theme parks police themselves and aren't directly regulated by the state.

Officials haven't released exact details of what happened to the girl. Police said she felt nauseated and dizzy after leaving the ride.

Last month, a four-year-old boy died after riding the park's "Mission: Space" ride.
