Dopey nearly falls from boat during Fantasmic! show

Videos have surfaced on social media showing Dopey the Dwarf falling during Fantasmic! last night, Sunday, August 7, 2016. During the show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the Disney characters all come out and dance on the decks of a riverboat.

At one point in the video, Dopey’s foot slips and he actually falls through the railing onto the deck below, landing on Goofy and falling back behind him. It appears that if it were not for landing on Goofy, he would have fallen completely off the boat.

The other characters continue dancing, unaware of the incident. As the video ends, you can see Chip bending down and assisting Dopey.

WESH.com says that an ambulance was called for the two characters, who were treated on site and released.
