Walt Disney World's second quarter injury report has been released, and surprisingly, the recent incident of the man losing his fingertips on Pirates of the Caribbean was not the first time this happened. The report showed that three months ago, a 12-year-old boy cut four of his fingers on the same attraction. Disney didn't release any more details about the boy's accident.

There were 11 other injuries reported in the document, which tracked the incidents from April through June. Other Magic Kingdom incidents include "an 8-year-old girl briefly lost consciousness on Magic Carpets of Aladdin; a 64-year-old woman fell and fractured her fibula while exiting a vehicle at Tomorrowland Indy Speedway; a 68-year-old man fell exiting the Astro Orbiter and developed a blood clot in his leg; and a 72-year-old woman with a pre-existing condition briefly lost consciousness and fell after leaving Big Thunder Mountain Railroad."

On Mission: SPACE at Epcot, three injuries were reported: "a 70-year-old woman complained of chest pain; a 58-year-old man with a pre-existing condition felt tightness in his chest and nausea; and a 54-year-old woman complained of motion sickness."

The remaining injuries included: "a 62-year-old woman fell on the walkway and injured her knee at the Seas with Nemo & Friends and a 51-year-old woman experienced nausea, dizziness and shortness of breath on Expedition Everest-Legend of the Forbidden Mountain" and "a 68-year-old woman with a pre-existing condition felt tightness in her chest on Kilimanjaro Safari at Animal Kingdom, and a 44-year-old man fractured his leg on Mayday Falls at Typhoon Lagoon."

Universal also reported some injuries. A 43-year-old woman reported head and neck pain after riding Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. E.T. Adventure caused a 61-year-old man to feel weak. On Revenge of the Mummy, a 15-year-old boy experienced a lowered level of consciousness and an 18-year-old man complained of chest pain.

No injuries were reported at SeaWorld, Wet 'n Wild, Busch Gardens and Legoland.

The Florida theme parks voluntarily report their injuries as part of an agreement with the state.
