Earlier this July an excited tourist got on the Pirates of the Caribbean themed ride in the Magic Kingdom section of the Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Sadly, his experience was less than pleasant.
The tourist lost the tips of his pinky and ring fingers while riding the installation in the park. Shortly after the unlucky guy lost two of his fingertips he was taken to a hospital. In the meantime, staff at Walt Disney World closed the ride and inspected it in order to find out what had happened. They weren’t able to find any possible threat for the riders, so they pronounced it as safe and reopened it.
There’s no additional info on the man’s condition. His name remains undisclosed and it’s not clear how exactly he lost his fingertips on the ride.
