    Does anyone know what happened to a girl on POTC today?

    As my boat was returning to the loading dock after the ride, the boats started backing up - I was about four or five boats away from the dock. A few minutes went by before I started wondering what was up, and noticed cast members trying to comfort a passenger still in the boat that was in the load area. It looked like she was slipping out of consciousness - she fell onto the floor of the boat, and they propped her back up, and finally pulled her from the boat onto the dock. Just then, they announced that the ride was closing, and that anyone in line should turn around and exit the building. They finally pulled the boats forward and had us exit to the right, and I saw the girl out cold, laid out on the dock. Didn't look good. Just curious if anyone had any info. Hope she's alright - pretty scary...

    Was she a huge Johnny Depp fan? She probably became starstruck from the Cpt. Jack Sparrow animatronic and fainted.

    I debated on a joke (similar)
    but decided no.

    I hope she's ok.

    semi off topic: this happened to my dad on an AIRPLANE coming home from MAUI to SEATTLE. (notice the caps..we had just taken off about 2 hours prior and were in the middle of nowhere over the ocean..had no other option but to keep going until we reached SeaTac airport).Had to give him oxygen, aspirin, lay him down.. flight attendants were awesome, but wow, I've never been so scared. He lost 40 lbs., and was on blood pressure medication; the doctor, WITHOUT telling him, doubled the prescription, and his heart rate was well below normal.
    Yes..off topic. But still kind of haunts me, so very scary to see somebody so close to you so out of it. People slipping out of conscienceness (sp?) is a very scary, frightening thing. Also very traumatic for family members to watch.

    I really hope this girl is okay, and her family is too!

    A lot of the times these things are pretty minor but Disneyland tends to make the right and correct decision in shutting a ride down at least for a certain period of time after something like this happens to ensure further safety for their guests. Especially on a ride like POTC, I wouldn't think a ride as subtle as that particular one would lead to anything serious but you can never assume anyways. Hope she's all right.

    Why would they close down the entire ride? Why not just help her to some place off stage and call for paramedics?

    If she slipped out of consciousness then that implies a neurological issue. First aid responders (the Cast Members in this case) should only move a person with possible head or neck injuries when they are potentially in a harmful place or position.

    If it is serious enough and if they might suspect that the ride might have caused it, Disney has to call DOSH and shut the ride down. I don't know what the criteria is to call DOSH but if Disney doesn't call them they could be in a world of pain. Disneyland's emergency response is very fast and efficient to say the least. Hopefully she is ok and everything is fine.
    Howdy folks, please keep your hands, arms and legs inside the train and remain seated at all times. Now then, hang on to them hats and glasses cause this here's the Wildest Ride in the Wilderness!!!

    I think Disney may have a little too much beer on the ride!

    I think you mean rum. Beer spoils too quickly without refridgeration, so they drank rum.

    In most cases of First Aid runs, having a line full of gawking guests doesn't help the situation. Closing the attraction and letting the nurses, first aid, and management who needs to be present come in without being bothered. Also, considering that they don't know how long it's going to take, they might as well just close the attraction until the situation is taken care of, whether it's five minutes or five hours.
