Disneyland light pole falls because of high winds, injures guests

Strong winds toppled a utility pole at the Disneyland theme park in Southern California on Monday, injuring three park visitors.

Disneyland officials told Fox News Digital that a power pole fell on Main Street U.S.A. just before 8:30 a.m., injuring several guests. The pole fell into a flower bed along the Main Street area near Disneyland’s flag poles, which are used for stage lights, parades and shows, the Orange County Register reported.

Disneyland News Today, which chronicled the incident at the popular theme park, reported that an elderly woman was hit in the head and taken away on a stretcher. Another guest was also seen with a bandage on her head, the website said.

An Anaheim Fire Rescue spokesperson told Fox News Digital that one patient suffered serious injuries and two others were treated at the scene and released.

The streetlights were removed around 10 a.m. after vehicles blocked off the area. The park reportedly remained open.

Fox News Digital reached out to the theme park and Anaheim Fire Department.
