Oh no! Breaking news from Walt Disney World. One of the Jungle Cruise ride vehicles has reportedly sunk with guests on it according to WDW News Today.

The boat has been identified as the Bomokandi Bertha, and it’s the first time a Jungle Cruise boat has sunk since 2004.

The incident occurred around 12:30 PM EST and the Jungle Cruise attraction was down for approximately 105 minutes.

People have taken to social media to talk about the incident and share photos…

… while others just poke fun at the incident.

Some used it to take a few shots at incoming Disney CEO Bob Chapek (who is known for his cheapness by Disney Parks fans)…

Maybe Disney can start upcharging for a private VIP Tour of the Backside of Water?

According to WESH 2, a Disney spokesperson said the park immediately called the Reedy Creek Fire Department to respond.

“A boat took on some water. Everyone got out of the boat safely,” Disney claimed.

No park attendees were reportedly injured.

More on this story as it develops.
