Jasmine Martinez of Somis reportedly was unconscious but breathing Friday afternoon after she rode the Revolution coaster. She was airlifted to a local hospital, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

At the time, investigators said the incident was not related to the ride's operation, Magic Mountain said.
