A dead body—a real one, not one created for the attraction—was found inside the haunted mansion ride at Disneyland Paris Saturday morning. The 45-year-old park employee is believed to have been electrocuted while fixing a light fixture inside the ride, which is called Phantom Manor at the Paris park. Colleagues found him before the park opened, and the ride was shut down for an investigation, AOL reports, citing local media.
As RT reports, a number of Disney workers have died in accidents at the theme parks over the years, including a monorail driver killed in a collision, at least two stunt performers who died while practicing or performing in shows, a parade marcher who tripped and was run over by a float, and two workers who were fatally struck by a rollercoaster. Disneyland Paris has seen just one other employee death: In 2010, a worker was cleaning "It's a Small World" when he was trapped under a boat and dragged along the tracks after the ride turned on.
