Cast member killed at Disney World*
Written by Robert Niles
I've received multiple reports that a Disney World cast member was injured last weekend on the Primeval Whirl coaster at Disney's Animal Kingdom. The employee was standing in an area off-limits to guests when she was struck by a moving car, knocking her off a platform. The woman, whose age I've not yet been able to track down, struck her head.Tweet
Disney did not report the accident to Florida's OSHA department until last night, when reports say the employee took a turn for the worse.
* Update: The cast member, who was in her 60s, died Thursday night, the Orlando Sentinel confirms.
