Anaheim – Firefighters successfully rescued a Disneyland employee who fell while cleaning the roof of Space Mountain on Wednesday morning, reports said.
Authorities say that the incident happened morning before the park’s scheduled opening time.
Reports added that the still unidentified male worker, aged 37, slid about 20 feet on the roof space due to harness malfunction.
He stopped sliding when he reached the edge of the sloped roof.
Firefighters were able to safely rescue the worker before the park opened.
The worker did not sustain life-threatening injuries but was left with broken left femur and right clavicle, and may have sustained rib fracture.
