Woman hit by Disney ferry boat
WESH 2 News is reporting yet another Disney transport incident. This time Barbara Wormald and her husband, Michael, were driving a rented two-seat boat when they crashed into a ferry. Barbara was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center by ambulance where she was found to have a collapsed lung, fractured ribs and possible spine injury. She remains in the hospital at this time.
According to WESH 2 News, William Green was piloting the ferry and said he saw the smaller boat "traveling recklessly" toward him. It hit the ferry and he put his vessel into reverse. He saw the boat go under the ferry and come up again in front.
Husband Michael Wormald says the ferry backed out and he thought the ferry was going to move away from him and his wife. When he noticed it was coming straight at him, he tried to make a sharp right turn to get out of the way, but was unable to do so in time. He says the ferry "hit his wife and ran over the top of her, wedging her between the ferry and the small boat momentarily."
Either way, there certainly seems to be an increase in such incidents recently
