ORLANDO, Fla. — A tourist from the United Kingdom was hospitalized Thursday morning after an accident on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.
The tips of the man’s ring finger and his pinky finger on his right hand were severed, according to Bo Jones with the Reedy Creek Fire Department.
Jones said the man, whose name was not released, was holding on to the outside of the boat during the ride. It’s not clear what hit the man’s hand and caused the injury.
And…wait for it…okay: cue the Disney response –
Disney spokeswoman Andrea Finger confirmed the accident and said the ride was briefly closed and has since been reopened.
Ms Finger? Cool. So Disney does irony, too.
Though it seems clear the injury was caused by pirates, n’est-ce pas? 1
