TAMPA, Fla. Busch Gardens says it doesn't think its roller coaster is to
blame for a death at a Florida theme park.
A 52-year-old man who complained he felt sick after riding the coaster
Monday morning died in a hospital two hours later. 
The ride reaches 50-miles-per-hour and drops from a 90-foot lift but
doesn't go upside down. It has written and audio warnings along the way
cautioning people from boarding the ride if they have high blood
pressure, heart problems or other illnesses. 
Officials briefly shut down the ride for an inspection but later
re-opened it.

permanently disabled and disfigured. 
Miami-based Bacardi U-S-A hasn't commented yet on the suit.
