Disneyland Worker Falls Off Space Mountain, Breaks Several Bones

A worker suffered several broken bones today after falling off the roof of Disneyland's Space Mountain. It's the second time in two months that an employee was injured on the ride.

It's a Dangerous World After All.

That could become the new theme for Space Mountain after two worker mishaps in recent months. On Wednesday, a worker fell while cleaning the roof of the Space Mountain attraction at Disneyland, breaking a leg and several other bones. In October, when struck by a car on the attraction.

In Wednesday's accident, a 37-year-old employee of HSG Inc., a subcontractor, was in a bosun chair when it came loose from an anchor and he fell 20 to 30 feet, said Peter Melton of the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health, known as Cal/OSHA.

The accident happened just after 7 a.m., according to Anaheim Fire Marshal Jeff Lutz. A barrier on the roof kept the worker from falling to the ground, Lutz said, adding firefighters had to rescue him with a fire engine outfitted with a cherry picker on a ladder.

The man, whose name was not released, broke his left leg and right collarbone, as well as some ribs, Melton said. He was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center. If he has to spend more than 24 hours in the hospital, then Cal/OSHA will open up an investigation, Melton said.

Cal/OSHA is already investigating an Oct. 3 Space Mountain accident that led to the hospitalization of a 68-year-old machinist who was working on the ride when he was struck by a car on the attraction.

See what happens when Romneturd visits "The Happiest Place On Earth". Thank goodness he was not elected and now the worker can get hospital care without standing in line with a voucher...

There has been numerous reports of deaths injurys at Disneyland .They always pay off the victims to keep it quite . I never go to this place . It has been proven not only do they associate themselves with the occult .But they also use many subliminal msg in their cartoons .

More powerfull ppl that controll these actors are child molesters .Read up ppl .Disney is dangerous .I know I will get alot of comments on this one so let it be .But before ppl comment on this read up.
