Last evening a 6 year old girl from New York fell off a third story balcony at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas at the Walt Disney World Resort.
Orange County deputies said the child was trying to reach something, so she moved a small table to the balcony railing, but lost her footing and fell from the third floor balcony. She fell into the giraffe area of the savanna. No animals were in the area.
Deputies say the girl’s father was in the shower at the time. Her mother saw the her fall and tried to grab her, but was unable to get to her in time.
The girl was airlifted to Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando with minor injuries. She was treated and released from the hospital.
Disney hasn’t released an official statement at this time. Disney does have locks on the sliding glass doors for child proofing. They are located at my eye level (5 ft 9in) or higher depending which resort you are staying at.
