Guy Gets Stuck on “Its A Small World” Ride

Its a Small World

I am about to go to Disney World and if this happens to me, I may not be coming back to work. They may have to put me in the looney bin.

Back on November 27th, 2009, Jose Martinez of San Pedro, California went to Disneyland in Anaheim with his family.  Jose is in his early 50s and is paralyzed, so he uses a wheelchair.

Toward the end of the day, Jose was on the “It’s a Small World” ride when it got stuck.  He was stuck there, in his boat, hearing the animatronic dolls sing “It’s a Small World” over and over again.

An able-bodied person would’ve been able to get off the ride, but because of Jose’s disability, he was trapped.  It took half an hour before Disneyland employees could get the ride working again and get him free.

After he finally got off, it took Jose three hours to medically stabilize from high blood pressure and a panic attack. So he ended up suing Disneyland in February of 2011.  And now, he’s been awarded a not-so-whopping $8,000 in damages for his suffering.

If you have never heard the “Its a Small World” song I am putting it below. What would you do if you were forced to listen to “It’s a Small World” for a half hour straight with no breaks?
