A woman allegedly suffered severe injuries, including “vaginal lacerations,” from what has been described as a “wedgie” in a lawsuit following a ride on a waterslide at Disney World.
Emma McGuinness is seeking more than $50,000 in damages after she was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery in 2019. The woman reportedly took a ride down the “Humunga Kowabunga” waterslide at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and suffered “gynecologic injuries” stemming from a wedgie, Outkick reported.
“As Ms. McGuinness neared the end of The Slide, her body lifted up, she became airborne, and she was slammed downward against The Slide – which increased the likelihood of her legs becoming uncrossed or otherwise exposing herself to injury in using The Slide,” the lawsuit stated.
“The impact of The Slide and her impact into the standing water at the bottom of The Slide caused Ms. McGuinness’ clothing to be painfully forced between her legs and for water to be violently forced inside her. She experienced immediate and severe pain internally and, as she stood up, blood began rushing from between her legs.”
The 30-year-old woman was then taken to a local hospital before being relocated to a second hospital “for the repair of her gynecologic injuries by a specialist,” Law & Crime reported.
The lawsuit claimed that there are “specific risks” that Disney knew about or should have known about that were not disclosed to the park’s guests nor the plaintiff.
The lawsuit alleged that the water at the bottom of the slide can push loose garments into a person’s anatomy, “an event known as a ‘wedgie.'”
“Because of a woman’s anatomy, the risk of a painful ‘wedgie’ is more common and more serious than it is for a man,” the lawsuit also claimed.
The lawsuit also stated that the plaintiff “suffered severe and permanent bodily injury” which included “severe vaginal lacerations, a full thickness laceration causing Plaintiff’s bowel to protrude through her abdominal wall, and damage to her internal organs.”
The injuries are allegedly continuing or permanent.
Disney did not respond to Law & Crime’s request for comment, and the Walt Disney Company has yet to return a request for comment from TheBlaze. This article will be updated should any formal statements be provided.
