Death at Disneyland Parking Garage a likely suicide

This is not a story that Disneyland likes to have told, but back in the late 80s and early 90s when Japan was enduring a long economic collapse, there were multiple occasions where troubled businessmen from Japan would book a trip to Disneyland, check into an upper story of the Disneyland hotel and then throw themselves out the window to the ground below. A couple particularly gruesome deaths were discovered by the hotel’s security guards in the early morning hours and they usually did a pretty good job of making sure guest impact was minimized.

Sadly, now our economy is not the best and Disney has again become a target for those wishing to take their own lives. This time with the Disneyland Mickey and Friends Parking Garage standing in for the Disneyland hotel. A story in the OC Register mentions that Disney security found an injured person at the garage and that they later died at the hospital. There was reportedly a suicide note on the body.

If you’re considering suicide please don’t head to Disneyland, instead call either the local toll free number for Emergency Psychiatric Evaluation in Orange County – 24 hour a day, 7 days a week 365 days a year: 866-830-6011 or 714-834-6900 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week: at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
