Disney monorail fails again.

An monorail driver was literally shocked yesterday, causing the entire monorail system to shut down for at least 20 minutes. Here's the news from the Orlando Sentinel:

"Walt Disney World monorails were out of service briefly this evening after a monorail pilot received a minor electric shock while flipping a switch, authorities said.

The pilot was mildly shocked in the arm while switching on a beacon that identifies the beam the monorail is traveling on, a fire official and Disney said. He was taken to Florida Hospital Celebration Health by ambulance, where he was treated and released.

Park guests were removed from the area while the pilot was being treated on the platform. The monorails were down for 20 or 30 minutes"

These accidents are becoming too frequent...
fortunately this time the injuries were minor.
