Family files lawsuit against Disney claiming workers laughed when disabled mom, who died months later, fell getting off Jungle Cruise

A November lawsuit against the Walt Disney Group has been assigned to a judge. The wrongful death suit alleges a disabled died as a result of injuries she received from falling

while exiting Disneyland's Jungle Cruise ride. The late woman's daughters say Disneyland workers "snickered" at their mother when she fell and broke her leg. A disabled woman's

family has hit Walt Disney Group with a lawsuit that accuses Disneyland employees of laughing at her after falling on Disneyland's Jungle Cruise ride — she died five months

later. The family of Joanne Aguilar, 66, of Ventura County, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Disney that claims she broke her leg in the August 2021 incident and died

in January 2022 as a result of complications, Southern California News Group reported this week. According to Disney's official site, the Jungle Cruise ride is a guided tour

of the theme park along a river. Earlier this month, the suit was assigned to US District Judge Cormac Carney at the Santa Ana courthouse, local news reported. Aguilar's

daughters, Andrea Mallul and Zenobia Hernandez, accompanied her to Disneyland on Aug. 22, 2021, and helped her get on the boat. But when she tried to get off the boat, they had

trouble getting her up "small unsecured blocks on top of the existing steps inside the boat," reports said. Their mother fell and fractured her femur, the lawsuit said,

while Disneyland employees laughed at the woman.
