British man loses fingertips on Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean ride
It is unclear how the victim was injured on the Florida log flume attraction
A British man has reportedly lost the tips of two of his fingers while riding on the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Walt Disney World in Florida.
The incident occurred on Thursday morning on the log flume ride, which has since been reopened.
Bo Jones of the Reedy Creek Fire Department told WKMG that the victim was an adult male from the United Kingdom who lost the tip of his ring and pinky finger on his right hand.
The man was taken to a local hospital and, following checks, Disney officials confirmed the ride was safe.
Officials have said it remains unclear how the victim’s fingers were injured.
The Pirates of the Caribbean ride was the inspiration for the hugely popular Disney film series, starring Keira Knightley, Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom.
The original ride was built at Disneyland in California, and there are also versions in Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Park in Paris. Visitors are taken on a journey through a decadent and amoral pirate world, set against the song “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me)”.
Since 2006, Disney has incorporated characters from the movies into the scenery of the attraction.
