A woman went to the "happiest place on earth" but was left with an injury that purportedly plagued her for years. She recently shared her experience on TikTok, and people had a lot to say.
This month, a TikToker's story went viral after she alleged Disneyland was responsible for a chronic bone infection she developed after a trip to their theme park.
Known as Hotwheels or @gamma.aminobutyric.acid, the woman explained that she took a trip to Disneyland in 2018. The trouble began when she was riding the Indiana Jones Adventure.
SHE COULD NOT GET OFF THE RIDE
The TikToker claims that the ride operator forgot to put her in the lane which connected her with her wheelchair. She said she sat through the ride three times before the operator finally helped her.
The video allegation has caused uproar online, and many netizens urged the woman to sue Disneyland. With millions of views and thousands of comments, people explained that she could make a case against them.
IT CAUSED A SCRAPE
The TikToker provided a few specifications about how the ordeal progressed. She explained that the ride initially caused a scrape on her bottom. The injury eventually progressed to a stage four wound.
She explained that she was in the hospital for six months during 2019. She was diagnosed with "osteomyelitis and malnutrition."
HER MEDICAL JOURNEY
In her video, text overlay shared that from 2019 to 2021, she faced a tumultuous medical journey. She was in and out of the hospital to treat her chronic osteomyelitis.
She added that for 2 months, she wasn't allowed to sit down. The woman also alleged that she had to rely on an IV for antibiotics and antifungals. Finally, doctors could operate and close the wound.
When users asked her if she sued, the TikToker stated she didn't think she had enough evidence to take on Disneyland. The woman added that she was now considering doing more research into the matter and potentially speaking to a lawyer.
In a follow-up video, she expressed that she vaguely recalled signing a document after the encounter. The TikToker didn't think much about it back then because she never foresaw how much damage the ride would lead to.
THE ONLINE REACTION
The woman said: “Of course I signed it because I didn’t think it was a big deal, I thought it was funny... that I got stuck on a ride." The only "compensation" she got from Disneyland was a free FastPass.
Netizens shared their views, and one user expressed: "Pressure injuries are very serious ... I'm very sorry this happened to you. I've seen it before in clinical."
Another added: "Even if you don't want money, it [would] be good to sue so that they are compelled to find a way to prevent this."
