12 years old child after visit in Disneyland maybe paraplegic

Sunday, December 18th, 2011

At the 23th november 2011 visited the 12 years old Bautista Riera, an Argentinian boy, Disneyland Paris. After riding 3 attractions, amongst others also the Tower of Terror, he felt bad and went to the first aid of the park. The cast members called the emergency service and they brought him directly to a hospital in Paris.

After the X-ray, the first prognosis was a contusion of the spinal cord which led to a paraplegic. About the current state of health exists no information because of the attending doctor refers to the confidentiality. So it’s unknown whether it is a temporary paralysis where the irritated nerves calm down in the spinal canal and go back to normal function or if the damages are permanent.

It is otherwise known, that the boy was athletic and tough. He played rugby, basketball and trained also – according to the news media – martial arts. The determination of the exact circumstances and the consequences is now up to the prosecutor.

All of us here at wish Bautista a full and speedy recovery.

During a visit to Toy Story Playland earlier in the day numerous additional, temporary lights were found to be standing in the new area, however, those turned out to be not necessary at night and were not used. Most propably they had been placed in TSPL already in anticipation for the major press event scheduled for Saturday night. But then for Friday’s Shareholders’ Club event the regular lighting needed no extra add-ons. This also had the big advantage that guests could enjoy the light design as it was intended by Imagineering… (more…)
