    OH no this reminds me of the parade accident where the employee wasn't where they should be. being hit by a moving car and falling off that ride especially from the top area, it doesnt bode well for her. but I hope and pray she gets better.

    That royally sucks. Hope she will be okay.

    But again, this begs the question:

    If this had happened anywhere else but Disney or a Theme Park (for example Wal-Mart) would the news have reported it?

    Answer, no.

    Answer, no.
    There are a lot of things that happen at Disney and are never reported. This I'd not even heard of until it was posted (if the employee didn't take a turn for the worse, it may not have been?)

    This reminds me of an incident at Six Flags over Georgia, a few years ago, when an older employee was in a restricted area near a rollercoaster and was struck.

    My prayers go out to the family and hopefully they will find out what happend.

    Everyone makes mistakes, most of us don't make one that is fatal.

    My prayers to the family and friends of the CM too.

    That's very sad. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

    There was also an incident like this at Magic Mountain a few years back with a foreign-exchange worker on the Scream coaster. But I believe it was later found out she did it intentionally.

    Hope that's not the case here.

    The condition of the CM cannot be confirmed at this point.

    Re: Disney Worker Injured At Animal Kingdom

    I see the story was pulled. I am assuming that Disney will announce something one way or the other.

    I hope that it was a mistake in reporting. After some bad internet type reporting, I always try to not say anything until I see it in the "real" news, but even that is never 100%.

    This is an updated report: http://www.wesh.com/news/14726804/detail.html

    The sheriffs office had said that she died, it doesn't say what her condition is.
