There’s no doubt about it: Walt Disney World Resort is truly the Most Magical Place on Earth, but not even Disney magic can stop tragedy from striking or injuries from occurring. After all, these things are out of anyone’s hands and can happen anywhere, anytime.

But that doesn’t make it any less upsetting. In fact, it’s probably one of the most frightening things to witness while visiting a Disney Park, a place known for magic and happiness that can’t be found anywhere else.

Unfortunately, guests visiting Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom recently were submitted to something like this.

One guest remained anonymous but posted about the situation on social media, giving us a better idea of what had happened. Reportedly, the long stretch of land between Casey’s Corner in Main Street, U.S.A., and the Jungle Cruise attraction in Adventureland had been blocked off shortly after guests spotted an “older gentleman in a stretcher.”

Guests also reported seeing “lots of cleaning solution and towels” on the floor in the same area. Of course, we don’t necessarily need to jump to any conclusions or assume this was a fatal accident. It very well could have been something like heat exhaustion or another ailment. In any case, it’s always disheartening and frightening to see.

If you ever see something like this situation while visiting Walt Disney World Resort, it’s always best to stay respectful.

That means giving anyone suffering an injury space and, to put it bluntly, minding one’s own business. Taking pictures, asking what happened, and otherwise exacerbating the situation is never the right thing to do in this situation.

But in this case, we’ll have to wait and see. Stay tuned to Disney Dining for the latest updates on this situation.
