Not a Happy Disney Memory

Heard on the radio this morning... Today marks the anniversary of the first homicide in Disneyland. On March 7, 1981, a man was stabbed after touching another man's girlfriend (he pinched her butt). Disneyland was found negligent in the death because a park nurse decided against calling paramedics -- can't have a siren and flashing red lights disturb the other park visitors -- and instead had the victim driven to the hospital in a park van. The victim bled to death on the way. I have not found an actual news story, but I did find net references here , here, here, and here. Or, just do your own Google on Mel Yorba.
