    Someone had posted a trip report photo with people standing on top of the building asking why they were there, I wonder if this is it?

    I feel sorry for the poor guy and hope he's ok.

    But the question begs, what was he doing up there? Was he fixing the roof or was some type of surveying being done for bigger and better things?

    They are redoing the roof on the Star Trader/Star Tours building. Its been going on for a week or two already and is going to be for another couple of months from what I know.

    And ABC7 says that a worker fell off a ladder and looks like they had to bring a cherry picker in to bring him down. I really think that is why this even MADE the news. Its the fact that the AFD was called in to help get the worker off of the roof because there is no easy access up there.

    And thats it...

    ANAHEIM (KABC) -- The Anaheim Fire Department responded to Tomorrowland in Disneyland at 7:21 a.m. after reports that a worker fell three feet from a ladder onto a roof.

    Yeah, it was from a ladder so that makes it newsworthy!

    It amazes me that you can't sneeze and fart at the same time if you work at the resort without the news calling attention to it anymore. I mean do you realize how many minor incidents happen in any business? Especially one with a property this size? I'm waiting for the day when someone working after hours trips and falls in front of Matterhorn and scrapes their knee and has Air7 flying overhead with a camera pointing to the person.

    OK, I work for a property management company, we own 27 commercial buildings and have had minor incidents like this happen at times. Air7 was never there. But because it's at D-land I guess it's newsworthy

    Redoing the roof on the Star Tours/Star Trader/Starcade building? Argh, that means having to wait till new aerial photos come out for me to redo that part of my model...

    Glad the worker isn't seriously hurt. Says he fell 5 feet and suffered a minor shoulder injury, which doesn't seem unrealistic at all. Kinda weird that it'd make news, but oh well.

    And possibly the fact that your property management company isn't owned by the same company that owns KABC-TV.... And the fact that those buildings are not a major Southern California landmark known the world over.

    PS...I agree that this was shaky news judgment, at best.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
