MSNBC is reporting that 6 guests were injured while on the Kali River Rapids ride at AK. As mentioned, 5 guests were taken to Celebration Hospital.
I have just seen a helicopter aerial view of the scene and there are many emergency personell on the scene. Apparentaly, the ride vehicle either flipped or listed severly, it is yet to be determined.

Does anyone have the scoop on what happened on the Kali River Rapids at AK on Tuesday? I saw this artical on magical mountain.net
"Six people were injured today on the Kali River Rapids ride in Animal Kingdom Park in Walt Disney World. The five Disney guests and one Disney employee did not sustain any life threatening injuries, but no word on the specific injuries was given.
Jacquee Polak, the Disney spokeswoman, said that it is not clear exactly what happened on the ride, but that it had malfunctioned around the area where guests are transferred from the boat to the walkway. "Nothing like this has ever happened," she said. The ride is closed until further investigation has been completed"
So whats the skinny anyone see what happened? or hear?
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Five Walt Disney World visitors and an employee were injured Tuesday after a water ride that simulates a trip down a rain forest river malfunctioned, authorities said.
Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Polak said the injuries were not life threatening, but she couldn’t be more specific.
Polak said it was not immediately clear what happened on the Kali River Rapids ride, but somehow it malfunctioned about the point that guests transfer from floats to a walkway. The ride simulates a river rapids trip through a rain forest in the Animal Kingdom part of Disney World.
