According to Orlando court records, a female tourist is suing Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts for negligence after a small watercraft her husband rented collided with a ferry last year. Barbara Wormald said Disney was negligent in renting her husband Michael Wormald the watercraft at Cap’n Jack’s Marina in Downtown Disney.
The small, two-person Sea Raycers craft collided with a ferry, injuring Barbara Wormald, says the lawsuit. Michael Wormald was driving the boat while his wife rode as a passenger. Barbara claims her husband was given no instructions on how to operate such a craft and should not have been allowed to rent or use it as he lacked proper experience. The couple live in Skipton, England, but were vacationing at Walt Disney World.
The Sea Raycer watercraft are widely available for rent across Walt Disney World property, and have been known to cause tourist injuries. According to court documents, Wormald suffered personal injuries from the watercraft crash, including a collapsed lung, fractured ribs and back pain. A Disney spokesperson declined to comment on the personal injury lawsuit, saying the resort will respond through the court.
