Very tragic news coming out of Disneyland Resort tonight. The Happiest Place on Earth was anything but on the evening of February 18. For the second time in less than three months, a Guest is dead after falling from the Mickey and Friends parking structure on property. Mickey and Friends is the primary parking area and is six stories high. At this time, it is unknown what level of the parking structure the woman fell from.
There are not many details on her death, but here is what we know, according to CBS Los Angeles.
According to Anaheim Police Department, officers were called to the scene at around 6:50 p.m. after receiving reports of a person who fell from the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure where guests park. It is a seven-story parking garage, located at 1313 Disneyland Drive.
Upon arrival, they found a woman lying on the ground.
She first received treatment at the scene before being rushed to a nearby hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
There was no information immediately available on the woman.
Investigators are working to determine what led up to the incident.
This is the first death reported at Disneyland Resort this year, but this is not the first time in recent months that a Guest has died after falling from the parking structure.
In December, a local school principal visited Disneyland and, sadly, jumped to his death from the same parking structure. According to reports, the man had recently been accused of domestic violence and feared that he would lose his job at the school. Before his tragic death, he sent out a long Facebook post, talking about his recent troubles.
Right now, police are investigating the incident and details are scarce. However, all reports are saying that the women fell. There are no reports indicating otherwise.
