Chris Aguilar, 14, was found around 10:40 p.m. after a nearly two-hour search through piles of debris in the New York United Hospital Center. The boy was taken to Greenwich Hospital, where he later died, according to WABC.

The building has been abandoned for more than a decade, according to WABC. Development proposals for the 15-acre property have been offered for years without a shovel turned. During that time, the shuttered facility has become a dangerous place for the curious.

“It's a common thing for some people to go there and see what the hospital was like, or just hang around there because they think it's cool,” Vanessa Vasquez, a friend of Aguilar, told WABC.

It is not known if a security guard was patrolling the property Tuesday night. Port Chester police are investigating.

Reitz was unemployed and was looking to put a smile on his face so he started making the daily trek, Disneyland said in a release.

The theme park hadn’t even opened its Cars Land at the time.

The Air Force veteran told KNBC, “It was something to do to keep things fun.”

Reitz, who is 44, was going to end the daily trips after a year, but kept going, and returns to the park every evening after working at the VA Long Beach Healthcare System.

A Disney spokesperson said that he doesn’t think there has been anyone else who can match Reitz streak.

How can he afford to go every day considering the ticket prices can top more than $100 a day? Reitz has annual passes.

While he enjoys many of the iconic rides, music and cast members, his favorite is ride is the one he rode when he was 2 years old with his mother, the Matterhorn Bobsleds, KNBC reported.
