Industrial accident claims Disney cast member

Edited: July 9, 2018, 9:32 PM

What is being called an industrial accident claimed the life of a Walt Disney World cast member in a backstage area behind the Pop Century Resort this morning.

The cast member has been identified as Juan Alberto Ojeda, 33.

Contrary to some reports floating around online, the accident - whatever it was - in not related to construction in the area.

Unfortunately this will happen every so often simply because of the sheer number of employees... In simple terms - if you have 190,000 employees every once in a while, you will lose one...

Remember a few years ago Disney had that monorail accident and they lost a young driver...
