Coroner's Lt. Fred Corral said Tuesday that Jasmine Martinez had an underlying medical condition and was not injured on the ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain.

Martinez, from Somis, died at a hospital over the weekend.

The girl and a parent were airlifted Friday from the park in Valencia.

The amusement park released a statement that said the girl was found breathing but unconscious after riding the Revolution.

The 113-foot-high looping steel coaster reaches speeds of 55 mph during a two-minute ride.

The Revolution, which dates to 1976, was cleared to reopen shortly after the incident.
