A Disneyland Paris worker has died at the Haunted House attraction, where the body was found this Sunday morning, being discovered by his colleagues between 8am and 9am.
There is a theory that the 45-years-old technician – whose name has not been given yet – might have been dead by an electrical failure that leads to a shocking dead while trying to make a repair on the Phantom Manor. The attraction will stay closed while the police investigate but there is a possibility that the ride might be expected to reopen on Wednesday.
The man is known that he has been working at Disneyland Paris since 2002 and is remembered by his fellow workmates saying he “always had a smile on his face”.
One of the park spokesmen stated that Disneyland Paris hadn’t determinate when will the ride reopen. The park also expressed his condolences to the family of this worker saying “We are truly saddened to learn of the passing of one of our Cast Members; our heart goes to his family and friends during this difficult time”.
This is the first tragedy at the park since a 53-years-old employee became trapped and died under a boat in the Small World ride back in 2010.
Disneyland Paris hasn’t provided yet further details about this tragic incident.
Disneyland Paris is located about 20 miles away of Paris being one of the most visited touristic destinations in Europe holding about 15 million visitors per year – or 14.2 million in 2014 but still a huge number, isn’t it? – Where nearly the halves of the visitors are from France, about 16% of them come from the U.K and 9% comes from Spain, according to Disneyland Paris website.
