    March 13th, According to the Orlando Sentinel, a cast member at Primeval Whirl, an attraction at Disney's Animal Kingdom, was flown to Orlando Regional Medical Center following an on-the-job injury on the afternoon of March 13th. The article suggests that the male victim is in critical condition and that, since the attraction was already closed for refurbishment, the ride was not in operation at the time of the incident.
