The Orange County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a suicide at Disney’s Contemporary Resort at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando Florida.
Monorails were shut down Tuesday afternoon while the Sheriff’s Office conducted their investigation. According to a Disney spokesperson, the investigation is being conducted by the sheriff’s office and that the monorail system is back up and running.
Social media and third party Disney blogs have been notorious for blowing news out of proportion. For instance a few months back when a monorail broke down, there were initial reports of serious injuries that were later cleared up by the Orlando Weekly as being none.
In a serious situation such as this, it is not my job to speculate what may or may not have caused this guest to do what they did but rather report what hard evidence and facts that we have now. The identity of the guest including the gender has not yet been identified and the case of death is still listed as “unknown”. It has also not been confirmed how, where, or exactly when the incident occurred.
I hope that not many people saw the incident (if it was in a public place) and that the family and all involved are okay. As of right now, the incident was not caused by anything in particular at the resort or of that nature.
Suicide is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. If you or someone you know is suicidal, or may be suicidal, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number at 1 (800) 273-8255 or email me firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember, you matter and someone in this world cares about you.
Be kind to people.
