By ASHLEY SOLEY-CERRO, KTLA

A 10-year-old girl found unconscious after riding a roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain last week died of natural causes unrelated to the coaster, the L.A. County coroner's office stated Tuesday.

Additional details on the child's death were not provided, but officials said Friday she was found unconscious but breathing after riding the coaster Revolution around 4 p.m. that day.

The girl, identified as Jasmine Martinez from Somis by the coroner's office, was flown by helicopter to the Northridge Hospital Medical Center. She died Saturday.

State investigators determined Friday the cause was unrelated to the operation of the ride, and it was reopened, according to a statement from Magic Mountain.

"There is no evidence to suggest that this was in any way ride related. We do not know if there was a pre-existing condition," the statement read.

State investigators again temporarily closed the ride for review Monday. It was cleared and reopened later that day, according to park spokeswoman Sue Carpenter.

Theme park officials extended their condolences to the girl's family in a statement.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Jasmine's family and friends during this difficult time," it read.

More than 45 million people have safely ridden Revolution since it was opened in 1976, according to theme park officials.

The ride's top speed is 55 mph, and it reaches an elevation of 12 stories, the park website stated.
