At least two people were injured when they fell entering rides at Disney World and were hospitalized with fractures, according to a state report released this week.
The most serious incident in the latest report was a 58-year-old Georgia man who died July 16 from drowning at Roa’s Rapids at the Aquatica water park.
The third-quarter report, which covers July through September, detailed a dozen other incidents that included:
A 58-year-old woman fell while boarding a raft at Teamboat Springs, a raft ride at Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park, and fractured her back Sept. 26.
The next day at Magic Kingdom, a 48-year-old woman fell while climbing into the Space Mountain car, lost consciousness and fractured her leg.
A 45-year-old woman fractured her arm July 27 on the Downhill Double Dipper, a water slide at Blizzard Beach.
A 53-year-old woman went into cardiac arrest Aug. 15 at TeAwa The Fearless River, a rapids ride at Universal Studios’ Volcano Bay.
A 4-year-old boy fractured his leg on the Walkabout Waters attraction, a children’s play area, at Aquatica.
Every quarter, theme parks disclose to the state any ride-related injuries or illnesses that required an immediate hospital stay of at least 24 hours.
The parks report the incidents as part of a deal they made to avoid state inspections.
