Disney World admits boy, 12, cut fingers on ride months before British tourist severed fingertips

Disney World has admitted that a boy of 12 cut four fingers on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride - just months before a British tourist severed two fingertips on the same ride.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Walt Disney World reported around a dozen injuries to the state for the second quarter of 2014. Universal Orlando reported four injuries in the April to June period.

The paper reports that five of Disney's incidents, including the one involving the 12-year-old boy, were at the Magic Kingdom.

Disney also reported that an eight-year-old girl briefly lost consciousness on Magic Carpets of Aladdin; a 64-year-old woman fell and fractured her leg while exiting a vehicle at Tomorrowland Indy Speedway; a 68-year-old man developed a blood clot in his leg after he fell while getting off the Astro Orbiter; and a 72-year-old woman with a pre-existing condition briefly lost consciousness and fell after leaving Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

According to the Daily Mail, other injuries included a man, 44, who fractured his leg at Typhoon Lagoon, and a woman 62, who sustained a knee injury in a fall at Seas with Nemo & Friends.

The British tourist lost two fingertips on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in mid-July.

According to the Mirror, the man lost the tops of his ring and little fingers on his right hand while on the log flume ride.

It is believed he had his hands outside the boat, despite warnings to keep them inside, when the incident occurred.

Disney officials stopped the ride and checked it out, reopening it later the same day after it was confirmed to be safe, reports the Toronto Star.
