Four-year-old boy dies after riding Mission: Space; investigation continues

Last Monday afternoon, a 4-year-old Pennsylvania boy died after riding Mission: Space at Epcot. Following the tragedy, Disney shut down the attraction for the remainder of the day. After a complete inspection in which Disney engineers determined that the $100 million ride was operating correctly and there was no malfunction, Mission: Space was open to guests on Tuesday morning. Cast members report few, if any, questions from other guests regarding the incident.

At approximately 3:14 p.m. on Monday, Daudi Bamuwamye (DOH'-dee bahm-yoo-WAHM'-yay), his mother and his sister boarded a capsule in Bay 3 of Mission: Space. During the ride, his mother, Agnes Bamuwamye, noticed that his body was rigid with his legs sticking straight out in front of him. She grabbed his hand, thinking that he was frightened. At the end of the ride, she found that he was limp and unresponsive in his seat. She picked him up and headed toward Alejandro Barroso, the nearest Disney employee, who was entering the ride to point guests to the exit. Barroso and the mother then took the boy to the lobby area and laid him on his back on a bench. Barroso picked up the phone, called 911, and began speaking to the operator. At that time, Barroso's supervisor Scott Clark arrived and continued talking to the 911 operator while Barroso went back to the boy.

At this point, according to the Sheriff's report, Barroso "checked for a pulse and breathing. Finding neither, Barroso began CPR. Clark finished with the 911 operator and then began assisting Barroso with CPR." However, according to the tape of the 911 call, it was not until one minute and 17 seconds into the call (over a minute after Clark took the phone) that the 911 operator asked if the child was breathing. (The initial description of the situation to the operator was that the boy had "passed out.") When advised that he was not breathing, she asked if anyone was doing CPR or was CPR-trained. The response from Clark was that nobody was doing CPR. It was not until two minutes and 40 seconds into the call that it was stated that CPR was underway. Clark did not get off the phone until the arrival of the Reedy Creek Emergency Services team four minutes and 30 seconds into the call. It is also uncertain as to why Clark identified himself to the 911 operator as "John."

After the paramedics arrived, they continued to perform CPR on the boy and transported him to Celebration Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy on Tuesday found no evidence of trauma and could find no reason for his death. Further tests are being conducted, but no results are expected for a couple of weeks.

According to the Sheriff's department, Bamuwamye was 46 inches tall, two inches taller than the minimum height requirement for the attraction. Signs on the ride warn guests with any of several health conditions not to ride. Bamuwamye was said not to have any medical conditions.

In 2003, Disney began placing motion sickness bags on the ride due to the nausea that the attraction induced in many riders. The number of reported incidents on the ride has decreased substantially since the warning signs were upgraded last year. The most recent reported incident was late last year, when a 40-year-old woman fainted on the ride and was transported to a hospital.

While Mission: Space riders experience a force of only about 2 forces of gravity, as compared to 4 Gs or more on other major theme park attractions, those other rides only exert the G-force for a few seconds, while Mission: Space exerts a sustained force for approximately 45 seconds. This, combined with the possible dizziness and nausea that can be caused by clogged ears, turning of the rider's head or closing of the rider's eyes, has caused many riders to need either medical assistance or at least a lengthy rest to recover their equilibrium.

Walt Disney World is one of several large theme parks and resorts in Florida that is not subject to state regulations on ride inspections. Disney does voluntarily report basic details about incidents that require hospitalization, or cases that require transportation to hospitals. However, attractions at Walt Disney World are only inspected by Disney engineers. Despite that, it is doubtful that Disney would reopen the attraction if it was not safe, in light of the public relations nightmare and loss of trust that would result from further injuries on the attraction.

Last week, the California Supreme Court ruled that theme park attraction operators should be considered "common carriers," which requires a higher duty of care, but the ruling only affects parks in California. U.S. Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) is again pushing a bill to require the Consumer Product Safety Commission to provide federal safety oversight for the theme park industry, but it is unknown if this accident will allow this bill to successfully make it out of committee, where it has died each time it was introduced previously.

In 2003, Entertainment Technology Corp., which designed the ride system for Disney, filed suit against the company alleging, among other things, that there was a risk to the public because Disney refused to allow it to be involved in the safety testing before the attraction's opening (link). Last week, however, a federal judge in Pennsylvania threw out the part of the lawsuit related to the question of safety and inspections by ETC.

The Bamuwamyes have reportedly hired Robert Samaritan, a personal-injury lawyer in Tampa. However, until the additional test results are released, it will not be known whether the ride is at fault or if the boy had an undiagnosed pre-existing medical condition.

A funeral service for Bamuwamye was held on Saturday.

Annual Passholder room discounts experience major change

Some major changes are being imposed on room reservations utilizing the Annual Passholder discount. Effective for stays beginning on or after October 8, passholder discounts must be booked at least 120 days in advance. The discounted rooms can only be booked online at the passholder Web site or via travel agent. Reservations will require a non-refundable deposit of one night's room rate plus tax. In addition, passholders will only be able to book one room instead of three.

This is going to put a crimp in many passholders' vacations, as those who make spontaneous trips will no longer be able to get those short-dated reservations. In addition, since access to passholder Web site is limited to those with a currently active passport, guests cannot buy an annual passport voucher and reserve a room using the passholder rate because they have not yet been to the park to activate the pass. This will be bad news for many who plan their vacations in this fashion.

We hope to have more on this story later this week.

Disney officially announces IT outsourcing

Disney made the official announcement last Monday that about one-third of all Information Technology positions would be outsourced to International Business Machines (IBM) and Affiliated Computer Services (ACS) for more than $1.3 billion over seven years. Over the next two months, the positions will be transferred to the two companies, with the affected employees given the chance to transfer with their jobs.

IBM will receive approximately $730 million over 7 years to manage Disney's mainframe and approximately 3,700 midrange computers, data storage systems holding 1.4 petabytes (1.4 quadrillion bytes) of information, major applications such as SAP AG business planning system and legacy software that runs operations at the domestic theme parks. While IBM will keep some employees on site, other work will be handled from a support site in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

ACS will receive $610 million over seven years to manage Disney's network, desktop PCs, help desk support, procurement and security.

Disney Marathon to introduce Team Challenge competition

Disney has announced another new feature for the 13th annual marathon weekend. In addition to splitting the dates of the two races—with the Half-Marathon being run on Saturday while the Marathon remains on Sunday—and introducing the Goofy's Race-and-a-Half Challenge for those who run both races, Disney will also introduce the Team Challenge for 2006. Teams will consist of three to five runners. The top three individual scores for each team will be added together to determine the team score. The top three teams in each of seven categories will receive awards.

Teams can register in the following categories: Male, Female, Mixed (at least one female participant), Masters (men or women 40 years or older), Running Clubs, Corporate and Military (active, retired, or reserve members of the U.S. Military). Team registration fees are $35 per team in addition to the individual fees of $95 for the marathon and $85 for the half-marathon.

For training tips and other information about the Walt Disney World Marathon, see our WDW Marathon Information Guide.

One millionth athlete participates at Wide World of Sports Complex

Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex honored the one-millionth athlete to participate at the site. Desirre Wilkerson of Louisville, Kentucky, was at The Milk House arena to participate in the AAU Junior Volleyball National Championships when she was honored. The 13-year-old received a special globe-shaped trophy, special T-shirts and picture frames for her and her teammates, helped unveil a special "One Million Athletes" banner at The Milk House and served as honorary grand marshals for the afternoon parade at the Magic Kingdom. The complex reached the milestone in approximately eight and a half years.

Jesse James and Huffy team up at Disney Adventures event

Just added to the Disney Adventures "Future of Cool" event at the Downtown Disney Marketplace this weekend is the "Hell on Wheels" showcase of kids' chopper bikes designed by Jesse James of West Coast Choppers for Huffy Bikes. The area will feature displays of the bikes, a free staged photo op with a bike and a backdrap and free giveaways. The event runs from 4-10 p.m. on June 24-26. It is believed that this is the first time that "Hell" has come to Walt Disney World since the closure of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

Say goodbye to Lucky

If you want to see Lucky the Dinosaur at Disney's Animal Kingdom, time is running out. The nine-foot-tall, 450-pound standalone Audio-Animatronic character's last day in Florida will be July 28. After that, he heads off to Hong Kong for the grand opening of Hong Kong Disneyland.

Correction: Extra Magic Hour changes

Last week, we noted that the Magic Kingdom would be adding Extra Magic Hours for the summer, starting July 1. The changes actually began last Wednedsday. We apologize for any confusion that may have caused.

Ears to the ground

…On July 4, both Fantasy in the Sky (at the Magic Kingdom) and Sorcery in the Sky (at the Disney-MGM Studios) fireworks will be presented at 9:00 p.m. Illuminations (at Epcot) will be presented at 10:00 p.m. Park closing times for that day will be Disney's Animal Kingdom at 6 p.m., Epcot and the Disney-MGM Studios at 10:00 p.m. and the Magic Kingdom at 12:30 a.m.

…Chicken Little and Abby Mallard (Ugly Duckling) are now making appearances at the Disney-MGM Studios, including acting as grand marshals for the Stars and Motor Cars Parade.

…We have had a report that the soundtrack on the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster now features a medley of different songs.

…Handstamps are a thing of the past as of today, as guests re-entering theme parks now will only use their ticket and their biometric reading.
