Oh wait, now I remember hearing about that once.

I don't know if it's actually true, though, or if it's just an urban legend. In any case, under the situation, that's probably the first logical thing most people would think of.

He might not have been completely drenched in gasoline either, or at least nowhere near enough to ignite anything. *shrug*

nope. Mythbusters tackled that one. Around here they even took off the "Don't use cell phone" signs on all the gas pumps after the show aired.

Beat me to it. Yeah, they showed that static shocks from getting out of the car is a more serious threat.

5 injured on Animal Kingdom ride at Disney

Beth Kassab | Sentinel Staff Writer
Posted May 29, 2007, 2:16 PM EDT STORY GALLERY

Five Walt Disney World guests and an employee were transported to the hospital Tuesday morning after the Kali River Rapids ride at Animal Kingdom was evacuated.

One of the rides' sensors caused the flumes to stop as they were traveling up a steep incline, prompting an evacuation about 10:20 a.m., said Bo Jones, deputy fire chief of the Reedy Creek Improvement District.

A platform designed to help transfer guests from the ride to the exit stairs malfunctioned during the evacuation.

One Disney employee may have suffered a bone fracture and the five guests suffered other minor injuries such as bruises and neck and back pain, Jones said.

The injured people included three teenagers, one 21-year-old and two people in their 40s.

Disney spokeswoman Kim Prunty said the reason the ride stopped is being investigated along with how the evacuation platform malfunctioned.

Kali River Rapids remains closed for now, she said.

"Our primary concern is for those who are impacted by the incident," Prunty said. "We're trying to determine what happened."

At least the boat didn't overturn, that seems like that's the main "river raft ride" accident.

Hopefully the injuries aren't life-threatening.
