    Another Disney Cast Member Dies On-Duty

    I looked around a little bit to see if anyone else posted this, but I had trouble finding it. So, if this is a redundancy, I apologize.

    Another CM seems to have tragically passed away while working. The CM named Mark Priest was a performer in the Captain Jack's Pirate Tutorial. It appears that during a duel that is part of the show fell, and apparently broke his neck. He died of his injuries four days later. Just like Austin's death, Mark's is also a very sad and tragic event.

    You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

    He was our favorite of the Macks in the Pirate Tutorial. I have lots of pictures of him. So sad. Just a freak accident. I don't think he broke his neck. He had a concussion and evidently had internal injuries in the brain that caused his death. We will really miss not seeing him on our next trip.
