Water ride goes out of control at Walt Disney World

Five visitors and an employee at Walt Disney World in Florida were injured Tuesday after a water ride malfunctioned.

Deputy Fire Chief Bo Jones said the injured guests were a family of four and a teenager. He said they suffered neck and back pain and other bumps and bruises, but no serious injuries.

Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Polak said a sensor on the Kali River Rapids ride tripped, forcing it to stop and riders to exit suddenly. She said the injuries happened while people were evacuating, but it was not immediately clear what went wrong.

The ride simulates a river rapids trip through a rain forest in the Animal Kingdom part of Disney World.

Polak said she was not aware of a similar problem occurring before, but the park closed the ride to investigate.
