A worker at Disneyland Paris has been found dead in the theme park’s haunted house. French police tell media outlets the man is believed to have been electrocuted while trying to fix the lighting in the Phantom Manor attraction on Saturday morning.
Disneyland union rep Patrick Maldidier told French newspaper Le Parisien the worker was very popular and “was someone who always had a smile on his face.”
A spokesman for Euro Disney said it was “deeply saddened” by the death, adding: “We send our thoughts to the family and relatives.”
The attraction has been temporarily closed to visitors while authorities investigate.
This is the second death of a worker at the Paris theme park in six years. In 2010, a 53-year-old cleaner was killed after getting trapped under a boat in the “It’s A Small World” ride, according to the International Business Times.
