Quadriplegic visitor sues Disney after stuck on ride

Published: February 9, 2011

A quadriplegic Disneyland visitor is suing the parent company for failing to evacuate him from the broken “it’s a small world” ride, the lawsuit says, prompting dangerously high blood pressure.

Jose Martinez of San Pedro filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles on Monday, saying the Walt Disney Co. violated the Americans with Disabilities Act by failing to have adequate evacuation procedures for visitors with mobility disabilities.

The suit has been moved to the federal court in Santa Ana, said Shawna Parks, Martinez’s attorney and legal director with the Disability Rights Legal Center.
