Never read the comments at Fox News. Here’s a sampling of the reaction to the news that a woman is suing Disney for injuries she received on a ride. The good folks commenting are torn; some think it’s great that “woke Disney” is getting sued, others are offended that anyone would sue a capitalist enterprise, and want to blame the woman.
I’m pretty sure this is a frivolious lawsuit. They planned it.
In the liberal world, there is no such thing as personal responsibility.
How predictable. The lawsuit doesn’t say they didn’t warn her. It’s says they didn’t tell her WHY she needed to cross her legs.
Then you read what happened to this woman.
(I’m going to put it below the fold because it’s rather horrific.)
She took a ride on a water slide at Disney World.
“The risk of injury to a rider’s genitalia and internal organs can be eliminated by using shorts or other protective clothing to act as a barrier and to prevent clothing or water from being forced inside his or her body when slammed into the pool of water at the end of The Slide,” the lawsuit says. “Disney does not instruct riders to wear protective clothing, does not make such protective shorts available to riders, and does not warn riders of the risk of injury if protective clothing is not worn while using The Slide.”
After Emma’s thrilling ride down the slide, the lawsuit said that she “experienced immediate and severe pain internally” and when she stood up, blood rushed from in between her legs.
The lawsuit says that Emma was immediately rushed to the hospital where she, “suffered severe and permanent bodily injury including severe vaginal lacerations, a full thickness laceration causing Plaintiff’s bowel to protrude through her abdominal wall, and damage to her internal organs.”
Disney has a ride that, if you don’t cross your legs, water will jet up into your guts and rupture your bowels, and some people think that is perfectly reasonable.
She’s suing for $50K, which sounds a bit on the low side. Sue to shut down the dangerous ride, at least.
