A 60-year-old Dis­ney­land employ­ee trag­i­cal­ly died after falling from a mov­ing golf cart in a back­stage area of the Ana­heim, Cal­i­for­nia theme park. 

Bon­nye Lear, a long­time cast mem­ber of 24 years who worked in mem­ber­ship ser­vices at the exclu­sive Club 33, suf­fered severe head trau­ma when she fell from the rear of the mov­ing cart on June 5th.

Emer­gency respon­ders rushed Lear to a local hos­pi­tal, but she was lat­er declared brain dead and passed away on June 7th. 

Dis­ney Resort Pres­i­dent Ken Potrock expressed the com­pa­ny’s heart­break over Lear’s death, offer­ing con­do­lences to her fam­i­ly and fel­low cast members.

The inci­dent has sparked con­tro­ver­sy, with a fel­low Dis­ney­land employ­ee claim­ing man­agers told cast mem­bers to “keep qui­et” about the cir­cum­stances of Lear’s death. 

This trag­ic event serves as a sober­ing reminder of the impor­tance of safe­ty pro­to­cols, even in the most mag­i­cal of theme park environments.
