On Sunday morning, the body of a 45-year-old Disneyland Paris worker was found in the park’s Phantom Manor attraction. According to the U.K.’s The Mirror, the technician was found dead around 10 a.m. on Sunday morning by other workers. The man’s name has not been released but he was said to have worked at the park for the past 14 years. Police are investigating the death but other workers have speculated he may have been electrocuted since he had been working with lighting backstage.
Phantom Manor is Disneyland Paris’ version of the famed Haunted Mansion attraction. In addition to a different story which ties it into the nearby Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, the Manor is said to have a darker tone than its domestic counterparts. As a result of the tragic death, the attraction will remain closed until at least Wednesday.
A spokesperson for the park said that management was “deeply saddened” and sent commiserations to the man’s family.
