Tourist Lost His Fingertips in Disney World on Pirates of the Caribbean Ride

Tourist loses fingertips on Pirates of the Caribbean Ride at Disney World.

After the Six Flags roller coaster accident, my fears of roller coaster rides increased tremendously. Now, there are reports that a man lost his fingertips on the Pirates of the Caribbean Ride at Disney World. At the Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, a British tourist has unfortunately learned the reason why you should keep your hands inside the ride at all times. The man is said to be in his late 50's and lost the tips of his ring and pinky fingers on his right hand on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.

"We received a call from a Disney cast member informing us that a guest had been injured, so we responded and he was treated at a local hospital. It was a non-emergency situation…"

"He was around 57 years old. What the medic told me is was he was saying, 'I had my hand on the side of the boat and I shouldn't have. It was all my fault.' [via>

The ride was closed as officials checked out the accident. But, the ride was soon reopened.
