A 37 year old man was hospitalized while he was injured cleaning the roof of Disneyland’s Space Mountain. Firefighters had to rescue the man and he was taken by ambulance to a hospital because of moderate injuries which included a broken left femur, broken right clavicle and a cut on his forehead.
This is not the type of ride you want to take on Space Mountain…
The injured man works for HSG, which is a maintenance company that was contracted by Disney to clean the roof. He apparently slipped when one of the ropes he was using came loose and slid about 20 feet on the 45 degree sloped roof hitting a barricade at the bottom of the roof. The accident happened before Disneyland opened at 8am. No closures to the ride was reported.
