Girl, 6, Critically Hurt at Disney World Ride


A 6-year-old girl was critically injured in an accident at a ride in Walt Disney World, officials said Friday.

Barbara Paribanez of Miami was in critical but stable condition at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Women in Orlando. She suffered a broken rib, broken right arm and collapsed lung, a hospital spokeswoman said.

She accidentally fell out of a boat at the “It’s A Small World” ride Thursday, Disney spokeswoman Michelle Fisher said. Investigators said they believe the child was subsequently hit by another boat.
