Gusty Winds Cause Injury at Disneyland

Wednesday, April 18, 2007

A palm frond apparently blown loose by gusty winds at Disneyland scraped a 17-year-old girl's neck on the Jungle Cruise ride Wednesday, officials said.

The girl was not believed to be seriously injured by the saw-toothed frond, but firefighters took her to Western Medical Center to be checked out, according to Maria Sabol of the Anaheim Fire Department.

The accident was reported at 12:40 p.m.

The frond's "fall was broken by the boat rail," but it scraped her neck, Sabol said.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
