The Garfield County Coroner has released some information regarding the weekend fatality at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.

Girl Identified

The 6-year-old girl who died on the Haunted Mine Drop ride on Sunday has been identified as Wongel Estifanos. Wongel is described by her family as a "beautiful, caring, and cheerful girl who loves Jesus so much for a 6-year-old girl."

Autopsy Conducted

On Tuesday, an autopsy was performed by the Garfield County Coroner's Office that identified multiple blunt force injuries. The final cause and manner of death are still pending until the investigation is completed.

The coroner's office said park employees initiated first aid until paramedics and the Glenwood Springs Fire Department arrived and determined the little girl had died.

"Ride Came Back Up Without Her On It'

The Haunted Mine Drop is a thrill ride that quickly and suddenly drops riders 110 feet in less than three seconds - in the dark. Reese Ziegler was at the park and said, via 9 News, she saw the family come out of the ride and they didn't know what happened. All they knew, she said,  was "the ride came back up without her on it."
