Man Drops From Tower Of Terror
A man was injured on August 20th after he fell 25 feet from a staircase Wednesday evening while waiting in line to ride the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s California Adventure park in Anaheim, California. He was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and was then released, reports local television KABC. The unnamed 19-year-old man fell after he attempted to climb over a barrier but lost his balance. Police did not release his name. Before toppling over, he told his friends, “Wouldn’t it be funny if I fell,” KABC reported. Ironic, eh? Police officials say that the man had most likely been drinking. “The guest was standing in line with friends on a second-floor platform when he climbed over a barrier to the area below and lost his balance and fell approximately 25 feet,” said Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown, CNN reported. His fall caused the theme park ride to shut down temporarily.
“The guest was transported by ambulance to the hospital,” stated Brown. “We understand his injuries were minor and he has been treated and released.”
