Guest Falls From Ferryboat Into Seven Seas Lagoon at Walt Disney World

2

It appears that a woman has fallen out of one of the ferryboats into the Seven Seas Lagoon at Walt Disney World

The ferry boats ferry guests to and from the Transportation and Ticket Center or select resorts to the Magic Kingdom park.

Social media was quick to begin talking about the incident. Starting with iThemePark:

 

Which led to people on the ferry boat posting:

 

 

Multiple people mentioned the slow response time for her rescue including the iThemePark account on Facebook.

It also isn’t clear where she fell from or if she accidentally fell or jumped.

The Orlando Park Zone reported on the situation as well and they received an interesting comment to their article from Aidan Slobodian:

She did not fall, she jumped willingly off the railing. She sat on the railing and it looked as if though she was going to stay there, but she pushed herself off the railing into the water below. She was not pushed, since there was no one around to do so, and i was around 5-6 feet away when the incident occurred.

The Orlando Park Zone also posted this video from Russ Booth showing the guest being rescued.

At the time of this article no statement has been issued by Disney. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
