Florida Today really needs to get the whole story straight before publishing something, their previous article claimed that the man was trying to retrieve a stroller that had fallen off the tram, now its a camera, which is it?
Don't you people have editors? Or even a half decent reporter to actually report the news correctly. Geesh!

A 49-year-old man was hospitalized Monday, after he jumped from a moving tram at Walt Disney World when trying to retrieve a camera he dropped, according to Walt Disney World officials.

The man, whose identity and hometown were not disclosed by Disney or emergency personnel, was transported by helicopter to Orlando Regional Medical Center for treatment of head injuries, Reedy Creek Emergency Services spokesman Bo Jones said.

Walt Disney World spokesman Jacob DiPietre said the man was on a transportation tram going from the Magic Kingdom parking lot to the Transportation and Ticket Center when his camera fell off the vehicle. The man injured his head when jumping off the tram to retrieve the camera.

Jones said, when emergency personnel arrived at the scene shortly after 9:30 a.m., they found the man on the ground bleeding from the head.

The man was conscious and answering questions, Jones said.

Jacquee Polak, a Walt Disney World spokeswoman, said Disney made its staff available to the injured man's family for any special needs or questions they had.
