(Newser) – A UK tourist lost two fingertips on his right hand while riding on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom in Florida yesterday. The man lost the tips of his ring and pinky fingers and was taken to a hospital, the local fire department tells WKMG of Orlando. Disney officials stopped the ride and checked it out, eventually determining that it was safe and reopening it later that day. Officials say it's still unclear how the incident happened. The man's name and condition have not been released.
