Coroner: Undiagnosed heart condition in boy who died at Knoebels Amusement Park

    The Montour County, Pa., coroner has determined the boy who died last summer at Knoebels Amusement Park had an undiagnosed heart condition.

    George S. Roberts III, 6, was found underwater last July in a pool he and his parents were in at the park.
    Lifeguards were unable to revive the Wilkes-Barre resident.

    According to the Patriot-News, a report released over the weekend found the boy had a heart condition associated with Noonan syndrome, a genetic disorder.
