Serious Injuries Continue at Disney Theme Parks in Orlando, Florida

Visitors continue to suffer serious injuries at Disney hotels, resorts and theme parks in Florida.

A 12-year-old boy recently lacerated four fingers on Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean ride three months before a British tourist had the tops of two fingers severed on the same attraction.

The boy was among 12 people who suffered 'significant' injuries at the Walt Disney World resort in the second quarter of 2014, according to a report made by the company to the State of Florida.  

The 12-year-old was taken to hospital for treatment and later released to continue his vacation with his family.

Details were revealed in the report by Disney chiefs to Florida state officials over the number of accidents at their theme parks in Orlando in 2014.
 
The youngest person injured was an eight year old girl who lost consciousness on Magic Carpets of Aladdin ride.

A 68 year old man suffered a blot clot in the leg after getting off the Astro Orbiter ride at Epcot while a 64 year old woman broke her leg after falling at the Tomorowland Speedway.

Other theme parks in Orlando also reported injuries from people who passed out after being thrown around on roller coasters.

Guests to the theme park going on the Pirates of Caribbean ride are warned to keep their hands inside and not to put them above their heads or outside the transport vehicle.

Riders are invited to 'set sail on a swashbuckling voyage to a long-forgotten time and place when pirates and privateers ruled the seas.'

It is one of the tamer thrill rides at the Disney theme parks in Orlando with people of all ages allowed to take part with no height restriction.

Disney rates its thrill level on their Magic Kingdom website as being 'Dark, Slow Rides, Small Drops'.

The original Pirates of the Caribbean ride was built at Disneyland in California, and there are also versions in Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Park in Paris.
