ANAHEIM, California (May 3, 2016) – A passenger aboard the California Screamin’ roller coaster at Disney’s California Adventure theme park pulled out a selfie stick and prompted park officials to temporarily close down the ride Monday for two hours, the Orange County Register reported.

It was the second incident involving a selfie stick at the Orange County amusement park in one week. The ride was closed about 5:10 p.m. after the passenger was seen by a Disney employee using a selfie stick during the ride which have been banned due to potential safety risks involved.

The theme park took the precaution of stopping the ride, having passengers exit the roller coaster and reopening it about 7 p.m.

DISNEYLAND BANS SELFIE STICKS

Nearly one year ago, Disney banned all guests from bringing the ubiquitous selfie sticks into any of its theme parks due to the potential safety risk. Other amusement parks do not allow guests to have loose items with them on rides. The enormous crowds at these types of attractions and fast-moving rides make these photography accessories a risk to others who could be injured. Additionally, selfie sticks are also prohibited at large events such as the Coachella Music Festival, Stagecoach and Lollapalooza have also prohibited guests from bringing selfie sticks into their venues.

SELFIE STICK ACCIDENTS

Conde Nast Traveler reported in September 2015 that more people were killed worldwide that year using selfie sticks than by shark attacks. Indeed, there were 11 deaths involving selfie sticks compared to six for shark attacks. People armed with selfie sticks have fallen to their deaths attempting to snap photos of themselves, drowned, were hit by trains, attacked by animals and have been involved in collisions in all types of vehicles.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.
