Fall at Walt Disney World claims life of Magic Kingdom cast member
A Walt Disney World cast member passed away today, after being injured in a fall at the Magic Kingdom theme park last week.
Mark Priest was a performer in the "Pirates Tutorial" show at the park, where performers lead audience members in a series of pirate tasks. Priest reportedly fell during the show on Thursday, breaking his neck.
Disney officials told the Orlando Sentinel that they had no indication that Priest's injuries were life-threatening. OSHA and the Orange Country Sheriff are now investigating.
This is the second death of a Walt Disney World cast member in an on-the-job incident this summer, following the monorail crash that claimed the life a a monorail driver last month.
HIs neck was not broken, he did have an injured vertibrae and 53 stitches in his head, and a hurt wrist which has been operated on. He had a blood clot which got in to his heart today and he died. it is VERY sad.
I find it very strange and a bit of a freak accident. If I am thinking correctly (which I might not), he could not have fallen from very high with at most being four feet. Then again, at the right angle, anything bad can happen.
Not worthy of a seperate thread, so I'm sticking this on to the end of this one
Why would a 59 year old take a picture trying to grab Minnie's breasts? Get TH on the report. He personally knows Minnie and can ask the mouse herself :)
This IS a big deal. She was groped and most likely in front of a bunch of children. I am sure it was a humiliating and degrading experience. No amount of money is going to make up for what she went through.
