WDW releases quarterly report of park injuries
Walt Disney World and other amusement parks in Florida have filed the mandated quarterly reports on park injuries. While the likes of Busch Gardens, SeaWorld, Universal Studios and Wet 'n Wild got off scot free this go-around, WDW's report isn't quite so squeaky clean. Between July and September of this year, WDW reported eight patrons having reported injuries or illness. This, however, does not include the death of three Disney employees--two performers and one monorail operator--within that time span. Here's the detailed list from Tampa Bay Online:
• A 57-year-old woman passed out on July 4 after riding and leaving Splash Mountain. She hit her head on a concrete floor, fracturing her skull.
• A 74-year-old woman lost her balance on July 17 on an "unload belt" from Peter Pan's Flight. She fell, hitting her head and fracturing a wrist.
• A 54-year-old man had a seizure on July 27 after leaving the Star Tours ride.
• A 66-year-old man reported feeling ill on Aug. 2 after using Expedition Everest.
• A 40-year-old man fell and broke his right wrist on Aug. 15 when leaving the Test Track ride.
• A 31-year-old woman had a seizure on Sept. 17 after leaving the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster.
• A 52-year-old woman who rode Mission SPACE on Sept. 19 reported dizziness and loss of memory.
• A 50-year-old woman who rode the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster on Sept. 21 reported chest pains and shortness of breath.
