A lady was found dead after falling from a parking garage for Disneyland, according to authorities on Saturday, in Anaheim, California.

Anaheim police Sgt. Jon McClintock states that officers were called to a report of a person who "jumped off or fell from" the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure around 6:50 p.m.

An adult woman was found on the ground by officers who provided her with first aid until Anaheim Fire and Rescue came. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital and later declared dead.

The identity of the woman was not released. It was uncertain whether she was a visitor to the theme park. The circumstances surrounding the woman's death are currently being investigated, The New York Post reported.

It remains unclear to investigators what led up to the incident, which is the second of its sort in the last several months. One park-goer tweeted that a bomb squad had been on the scene about an hour after the incident to investigate a black bag that had been left near the bottom of the parking structure.

The seven-story Mickey & Friends Parking Structure was built in 2000. The garage was the biggest of its kind at the time it was built and can hold over 10,000 cars. Its construction allowed for the closing of the parking lot adjacent to Disneyland Park, making room for the construction of Disney California Adventure.

Local media reports that the site has seen a number of other casualties.

The Los Angeles Times reported that a guy in his 50s committed suicide by jumping to his death from the garage in December and that at least three other people had also perished by jumping since the building's opening.

The man who was the son of a famed Disney musical director, and himself an elementary school principal, jumped to his death from the same parking structure.

Chris Christensen, 51, the principal of William T. Newland Elementary School in Huntington Beach, took his own life in front of Anaheim parkgoers - including children - who'd gathered to watch the annual Candlelight Ceremony.

In his last Facebook post, he accused his wife, Marlena, for 'letting her anger get the best of her', then calling the police and landing him in jail, which prompted him to be put on administrative leave from his job.

He had been charged with misdemeanor counts of child endangerment and battery and was expected to appear in court the following week.
