For those following the story that happened earlier tonight, where a woman apparently jumped off of a Walt Disney World Ferryboat, The Orlando Sentinel has new information from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
It is believed that the 56 year old, unnamed woman, deliberately jumped in a suicide attempt:
Cpl. Antwan Daniels indicated that the woman was on the ferryboat with other people she knew when she jumped into the lagoon at around 7 PM. This goes along with the witness statement I posted from The Orlando Park Zone. Commenter Aidan Slobodian has posted:
After her rescue she was transported to a local hospital where she is being treated.
Disney’s Reedy Creek Improvement District initially responded and called in the Orange County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO). The Disney spokeswoman on hand referred all questions to the OSCO.
The Orlando Sentinel also posted a link to a video of the rescue from @MiKiEPNyC on Twitter.
