Sad news tonight from Disney’s Hollywood Studios. A stunt performer at the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular died during an evening rehearsal for the show. The Orlando Sentinel reports that he died after doing a tumbling roll. Sad proof that even what may seem like the simplest stunts can be dangerous. Performances of the show have been canceled for at least Tuesday.
The entirety of Walt Disney World’s talented cast must be rolling after three cast member deaths in such quick succession. After the monorail death, there was the very sad death of a performer at the Magic Kingdom’s Jack Sparrow Tutorial. I’m sure everyone is ready for this trend to end.
The condolences of all the staff of the Disney blog goes out to the performers family, friends, and the entire cast of Disney’s Hollywood Studios for this sad loss.
