    Man falls off Tram at WDW

    From MickeyNews: (or from the "they only have HOW many warnings not to do this?" department)

    Officials said the tram was approaching the ticketing area of the Magic Kingdom when the 49-year-old man fell, WESH 2 News reported.

    A stroller fell off the tram, and the man was attempting to retrieve the stroller when he jumped off the tram and fell. He hit his head on the pavement.

    The Reedy Creek Fire Department got a call about the incident at about 9:30 a.m.

    Rescuers said they found the man on the ground. They treated him before he was airlifted to Orlando Regional Medical Center.

    They said that step was taken as a precaution.

    The man was conscious and alert when rescue personnel treated him.

    At last check, the man was in stable condition, Disney officials said.

    A park spokesman said the incident did not affect park operations at the Magic Kingdom.

    Wow. What a complete loon. How many times does the operator say, "If you drop something, be sure to tell the driver at the NEXT top, so they can retrieve it for you." What an idiot. (Unless of course, the stroller had his baby IN IT!)

    I feel for the guy, and maybe Amanda's right. I mean, they stress enough about the "if something falls, tell the driver at the NEXT stop", but They only have that phrase in English and Spanish. Now, if he does speak English......ugh.....IDIOT.

    I don't think you can acredit his action just because he can't speak English...I mean, I think it's pretty universal not to jump off of a moving vehicle...or maybe it's just me.

    It is common sense not to jump off a moving vehicle, but how many instances have you heard of when people didn't exhibit common sense?

    Apparently common sense isn't really all that common?

    I hope the guy is okay, but my goodness. That sounds like something one of my kids would do. I mean, I can see reaching for something as it falls.

    That's true, go figure of people.

    I haven't heard anything else on the news about this guy, so I guess he's alright (aside from a bruised ego)
