In a rather bizarre story, an Alabama family is attempting to sue Disney after according to the family, a snake fell from a tree at Animal Kingdom and bit one of the family members.

The family states that the snake “escaped” from an attraction at the park.  A Disney spokesperson mentions that “These allegations are an utter mischaracterization of the facts.”

The snake was wild, nonvenoumous  and not part of an attraction at Animal Kingdom according to Disney.  The boy was bitten and treated at Disney with a band-aid  and the family returned to the park.

Another twist in the story is that the family is stating that the boy getting bit by the snake triggered the grandmother to go into cardiac arrest and died a short time later.  Disney says that there was no call for an ambulance for the grandmother after the incident.
