This was my last trip to California Disney Adventure. The highlight of
the trip was when a very young Asian girl unfortunately got her head stuck
between the steel bars. The supervisor and assistant are watching the
4 engineers work at it.. Notice how wide those bars are... Was
that not an accident waiting to happen?
The first method they tried was an air bladder that a loud air compressor
pumped up. The bladder didn't expand enough so that method was a
failure. What's interesting is the genius engineers from the magic
kingdom ended up using a hydraulic expander to spread apart the bars to
ultimately free her head. It sort of looked like a hydraulic jack
that's function seemed to be to spread apart bars where somebody got their
head stuck... Anyways I had front row seats and video taped the whole
thing (Hence the film grain from a screen capture). Oh, and my mom is
behind the wall so she could comfort her.
