A worker performing cleaning work on the exterior of Disneyland’s Space Mountain was injured last Wednesday. The worker was cleaning the roof of the iconic attraction when one of the worker’s ropes came loose and he slid 20 feet at a 45 degree angle down the roof and into a barrier below. The worker suffered a few broken bones in the accident, but is expected to recover.
Orange County Fire & Rescue was called to the park at 7:05 AM and helped evacuate the worker from the roof. The maintenance worker was an employee of HSG, a contractor who specializes in building maintenance and cleaning.
Sounds like a frightening incident. Our thoughts go out to the worker and his family. We hope he has a swift and full recovery.
This is the second major worker involved accident at Disneyland’s Space Mountain this year. In October, a maintenance worker bringing a car back on track was struck and injured. He was released from the hospital a week later.
