Pirates Of The Caribbean Briefly Shut Down After Man Loses Fingers On Ride

Visitors to Disney World may have been a bit disappointed yesterday to find the Pirates of the Caribbean ride temporarily out of operation, but probably not as disappointed as the man who lost pieces of two fingers on the ride.

WKMG-TV in Orlando reports that the incident occurred early Thursday morning. The ride was shut down for inspection after an adult male was injured.

A friend of the man confirmed to WKMG that the man lost the tips of his right pinky and ring fingers, though it’s unclear exactly how.

Disney officials reopened the pirate-themed boat ride after determining that it was safe for park visitors.
