Man Loses Fingertips on Pirates of the Caribbean Ride

Please keep hands and arms inside the boat at all times. :)

I thought that all Disney boat rides use rubber bumpers after a boy lost part of his thumb on the Storybook Canals at Disneyland nine years ago. I'm sure authorities will enforce it now.

But i thought Tipping was customary in America

Those pirates are mean.

I don't understand how you lose a fingertips on a theme park ride unless that person has a very low IQ.
And a kid lost his thumb on the Storybook Canal? Are there any links to this?

I saw this story right after it happened so I sent Robert a Tweet but he simply ignored me as usual.. hahahhaha

Still not much detail around this... Maybe Disney is keeping it on the Down low....

I will take the loss of a finger tip with a nice settlement....

Maybe his finger tips were already severed and he just made it look like The Pirates did it...

Dead men tell no tales, but finger tip losing men do....!
