    Re: Accident on Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Is this being reported anywhere else? This article doesn't seem too concerned with its supposed subject.

    It was at the end of the ride and the young boy got up too early and when the boat moved he fell from it and was crushed between the boat and the side of the ride. The ride is closed now.

    Seems like the young boy is no more in a critical condition this evening.

    Re: Accident on Pirates of the Caribbean.

    How would a thing like that occur where a child could lose his balance and fall under the loading dock. I don't know how Pairs dock is but at DL the boat when at dock are above the floor line so when you step out you step up but there is no water reachable from the sides of the boat at dock. I could see the kid going in the water at the front of the boat or in the rear but not on the sides.

    We're not sure exactly how the accident happened yet but, until we do, the good news is that the little boy is apparently out of danger and recovering well. The ride remains closed while the proper authorities carry out their investigation.

    Anything bad can always happen in DLP. I'm sure there will be an accident with multiple deaths some time soon. The park doesn't even look good. Bad management makes a horrible place.

    Re: Accident on Pirates of the Caribbean.

    What a cheerful comment to make Timmy. In this case it was the fault of the Guest and not the safe operation of the ride. I too question the safety procedures at this loss making Resort at times when I see how dirty and tired looking thinks look. But sad reality is I still feel safer riding Disneyland Paris attractions then I would at some other Parks across Asia, Europe and America.

    Anything bad can always happen anywhere. You're starting to sound like you want there to be deaths so you can be vindicated in your predictions.

    A child almost died because of the Parent not watching what he was up to at the time. How is Disneyland Paris to blame?

    Re: Accident on Pirates of the Caribbean.

    I never said anyone is to blame. But it does seme that who ever calls the shots in that place should think over their plan. Bad things does not just happend. ...and i does seme that bad things happen alot in DLP.
