For the second time in as many months, a worker at Disneyland
was injured while working on Space Mountain
. A 37-year-old male was cleaning the roof of the ride Wednesday morning, November 21, when he slipped and was injured. One of the ropes in his safety harness came loose, causing the man to slide 20 feet down the roof, stopping when he hit a barricade at the bottom. His injuries included a broken leg, a broken clavicle and possible broken ribs. The fire department was called at 7:05 am to respond to the incident, which will be investigated by the state safety department.
In October, a 68-year-old Disneyland machinist suffered head, chest and back injuries when he was struck by a ride vehicle
