Disneyland sued over Jungle Cruise crashby Leah Zanolla
Feb 12, 2012
A California couple sues Disneyland, claiming that they were injured after riding the Jungle Cruise attraction at the theme park. Jeffrey and Maria Lee filed a lawsuit in the Orange County Superior Court on February 3 alleging that they were in an accident on the ride in February 2010. According to the lawsuit, "the couple noticed the ride operator was driving the boat very fast. As the Jungle Cruise ride approached the Hippopotamus area of the ride, the boat crashed straight into the island and trees." They claimed that they were then thrown from their seats. The suit does not provide a list of injuries or medical expenses, but does say the crash was "substantial and the negligent cause of injuries" requiring medical attention. Disneyland has not yet responded to the case.
