    Another link to the story. So sad. I was once a ten year old lad staying at Fort Wilderness.

    They always tell guests not to run down to the busses. I guess now they have to tell the busses not to run down the guests.

    That is indeed sad, but may I remind everyone that, as far as I know, the case is still being investigated, and thus no final conclusion has been made at this time.

    Having said that, I would like to say, besides all the others, let us keep in all thoughts and prayers, the boy's 11-year-old companion and the passengers on the bus. For none of whom, I imagine, was this a pleasant experience. And for the person who had the hardest job of all, the one who had to notify the boy's family of his death.

    I really wish the news media would give the monorail accident a rest. Every time there is an accident they re-tell the story.

    I think this is very sad, not only for the child's family, but also for the bus driver. What makes this even more sad is that so many people hear these stories and the parks become a sad place for many (those families of the accident victims). What should be one of the happiest places on earth is now a place they may never return to.

    Re: 10 year old boy killed, hit by Disney Bus.

    The 5PM news gave the preliminary findings: The boy (9 yrs old) was riding on the sidewalk with his friend. He rode his bike off the sidewalk, for reasons unknown, and ran into the side of the bus. The moving bus, then pulled him under. Very sad for all involved.

    Re: 10 year old boy killed, hit by Disney Bus.

    The family was interviewed on the 4:00 PM news today, Friday. The family contends that the bus drove up on the sidewalk and hit the boy. People who witnessed the accident, say the boy looked over his left shoulder to see if anyone was behind him and he veered into the bus. I guess it will take the full 60 days to untangle the evidence so FHP can make a decision as to what happened.

    Now, I'm not one to defend Disney when they're clearly in the wrong, but why would anyone take the word of someone who wasn't there over the word of someone who was??? Just because they are the victim's family (whom we all feel sorry for) does not automatically make them a credible source on what happened; and I'm inclined that a court would probably agree with me.
