No one should go on water rides because they are
and you are essentially sharing water with the grossest members of our society. The fact that people do that by choice already speaks a lot to their intelligence.
That said, there are also a lot of reasons these days to not support Disney. Which includes their constant fight to get
on the gender bender train.
But here is one more reason for you thrill seekers who do not care about swimming around in feces infested water to hold off on booking that flight to Orlando.
Humunga Kowabunga at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park may be responsible for the world's most destructive wedgie ever.
A woman has filed a
alleging she has suffered severe injuries, including "vaginal lacerations," from what has been described as a "wedgie" following a ride on a waterslide at Disney World.
Woman sues Disney World after painful wedgie following water slide leads to permanent injuries
Emma McGuinness is
more than $50,000 in damages after she was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery in 2019.
McGuinness reportedly took a ride down the Humunga Kowabunga water slide and suffered "gynecologic injuries" stemming from a wedgie.
In case you are unfamiliar with the slide - watch
At the top of the Slide, riders are instructed to cross their legs at the ankles.
“As Ms. McGuinness neared the end of The Slide, her body lifted up, she became airborne, and she was slammed downward against The Slide – which increased the likelihood of her legs becoming uncrossed or otherwise exposing herself to injury in using The Slide,” the
The lawsuit also states that “The impact of The Slide and her impact into the standing water at the bottom of The Slide caused Ms. McGuinness’ clothing to be painfully forced between her legs and for water to be violently forced inside her.” And that she “experienced immediate and severe pain internally and, as she stood up, blood began rushing from between her legs.”
McGuinness was taken by ambulance to a hospital and eventually moved to a different hospital “for the repair of her gynecologic injuries by a specialist,” the
She ultimately suffered “severe and permanent bodily injury including severe vaginal lacerations, a full thickness laceration causing Plaintiff’s bowel to protrude through her abdominal wall, and damage to her internal organs,” according to the complaint.
It is further alleged that there are "specific risks" that Disney knew about or should have known about that were not disclosed and that the water can push loose garments into a person's anatomy, "an event known as a 'wedgie.'"
Her husband is also
for “loss of consortium.”
According to the slide description on Disney's
, riders will Plummet 214 feet downhill as you make your way to a "surprise ending."
It is probably safe to assume that this was not the ‘surprise’ she was hoping for.
If what this lady alleges is actually true, then I am having a hard time thinking that $50,000 is enough.
Some people will probably say “there are risks you take in life.”
Yeah, but no one goes on a water slide thinking they will be getting “severe vaginal lacerations.”
On the other hand, I have seen Final Destination and we know that movie definitely proves freak accidents can and will happen, especially at an amusement park.
Obviously, this is still not a statistically significant risk as the water park has been open since
What do you think? Is this another McDonald's hot coffee case all over again? Or is this nothing more than an atomic wedgie that karma may have served?
