Accidents Can Happen

But who is to blame?

The Register reported yesterday about two women who, from the typical close-mouthed Disney account, seemed to have fallen off the tram. No info about whether it was at a “complete stop” or if it was still moving. However, more egregious seems to be the reports about one of the women’s feet possibly being run over by the tram. Frustrating because the lack of a detailed account makes it hard to know what actually happened. Were the ladies up at the front and thus not easily seen by either of the tram personnel? I’m not sure I believe that the tram operators, if the tram had been stopped, would give the all clear if people were rolling aound on the floor. Different story if the tram was still in motion, however.

I’m curious as to how much fault lies with the ladies and how much lies with Disney. But, we’ll probably just have to leave it to the lawyers to figure it out, as always.

Update: A little more info coming out now, it appears that at least one of the women was standing up while the tram was moving. Thus, the falling off. Is it rude if I say “Don’t stand up on a moving tram and expect to stay on it?”

    How much you wanna bet one of them on their cell phone when the incident occurred?

    According to other reports one woman stood up while the tram was moving, and the second woman fell out while trying to grab the first. Both suffered head injuries – no indication of feet being run over.

    Tourists are stupid, so I’m quite sure it was entirely their fault, as some guy said. Sadly I have no doubt Disney will still compensate the 2 stupid tourists oh too well.
