Monday was a bad day for workers at WDW

Man injured in fall at Walt Disney World hours after worker was killed in separate accident

 

A worker was injured in an industrial accident at Walt Disney World late Monday, hours after a man was killed in a separate incident, according to authorities.

The accident happened shortly after 10:30 p.m. at 2901 Osceola Parkway, the address for Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Deputy Ingrid Tejada-Monforte said.

A man had fallen and injured himself before calling 911, Tejada-Monforte said. He was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Disney spokeswoman Andrea Finger said the company is focused on assisting the worker and his family, but did not provide any additional information about the accident.

 

“We wish him a full and smooth recovery,” Finger said.

Monday night’s incident came about 12 hours after Juan Alberto Ojeda, 33 was killed in a reported accident near the Pop Century Resort. Details about what caused his death haven’t been released.

If he was working on the utility vehicle how did it jump a curb...?

was it moving while he was trying to fix it?

do they mean the utility cart he’s was driving?

Hey, who needs any sort of schooling in journalism anymore!  I think they meant he was working and driving a utility cart.

Where are the editors to catch these mistakes?  Oh that's right snowflakes can't be criticized/corrected about anything or they will have a melt down while running to their attorney.

When I went to school back.in the dark ages we covered journalism as part of English class.  We were taught that only major stories that affected the world or the US went.on the front page above the fold. Then minor international/IS stories went below.  The only exception was something gigantic affecting the local population.  Now, every time a Kardashian sneezes it's front page headlines.
