Man stuck on It's a Small World gets awarded $8,000


Ever get stuck on a ride at an amusement park?  This man did, then sued Disney, and won.  Jose Martinez, who is paralyzed was stuck on It’s a Small World at Disneyland in California.  He was stuck near the exit and was not being evacuated in a timely manner according to his attorney.  Martinez later sued Disney for damages, winning $8,000.

I personally think I would have sued just to have had to listen to that music over and over.  That is enough damage in itself.  Read more over at the LA Times.
