    Guest dies at Magic Kingdom

    I know it is not as "dramatic" as other deaths at WDW but I still think it is sad and my prayers go out to the man's family.

    P.S. It doesn't have very many details.

    If I read that correctly, it looks like 2 people recently died? The 72 year old gentleman and then a lady who fell off a platform at AK?
    That is very sad, but I do hope I am still enjoying WDW at age 72.

    Yeah, I heard about this. Sad. I saw in another article that he "lost is balance" though, not fell. Same thing I gess.

    I actually heard that three people died at Disney this past month...the cast member, the man that fell and a man that died of a heart attack on a bus going to the MK.

    There has been another death recently. On Dec. 4th, a 71 year old man died of a heart attack on a Disney bus en route to the Magic Kingdom.
    Here's a link: Orlando Sentinel - Third death at Disney: heart attack on a bus by Beth Kassab
    My prayers go out to the families of these 3 people.

    3 deaths in one month, that is horrible! For the 2 old men it was there time to go and for the CM, she wasn't thinking when she went where she wasn't suppose to go.

    Come on people, people die every day. No I am not heartless, and while sad, why make a big deal out of it just because they died at Disney.
    We would never heard of the man falling and the man having a heart attack on a bus if it was in East Oshkosh.

    I must be heartless too Brian cause I was thinking the same thing. Well...not the same thing, since I have no clue where East Oshkosh is , but you get my point!
