Disney Pays Out 8 Thousand Dollars for “It’s a Small World” Catastrophe
I believe it is the worst Earworm ever. That annoying song with those tiny voices from that tiny world.
Imagine being stuck on the "It's a Small World ride for 30 minutes. In "It's a Small World" time that equals a whole day. Now imagine you are disabled and you have to go to the bathroom. That was reality for Jose Martinez. The story is told on MailOnline.
Martinez lawyer David Geffen says Martinez was the only passenger not rescued when the ride broke down in 2009, and staffers failed to call the fire department to free him. Martinez was stuck and That Song continued to Play!
The Lawyer claims Martinez didn't medically stabilize for three hours after the ride broke down in 2009.
Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown said the Anaheim theme park believes it provided appropriate assistance during the incident, and is disappointed that the court did not fully agree.
Geffen says Martinez uses a wheelchair, suffers from panic attacks and high blood pressure, which was aggravated by a need to urinate.
Geffen says half the 8 thousand dollar award is for pain and suffering, and the rest is for a violation of disability law. Brown says the violation has been addressed.
