  • News One Hospitalized After Chlorine Leak at Disneyland Hotel

    Not much information in the article, but chlorine leaks are no jokes. We used to train for them all the time when I was a lifeguard. Chlorine is a heavy gas so it tends to stay low to the ground. You'll know when something is wrong! That employee should be okay, it burns to breathe when you've inhaled too much chlorine. Wishing them a speedy recovery.

      A few years ago, a kid was burned by chlorine in one of the city pools.

      The circulating pump had stopped but the chlorine pump kept running. When the circ pump started back up, it pushed a bunch or concentrated chlorine out one of the jets. The kid had his back right up to the jet.

      They closed all pools while myself and another guy installed relays to stop the chlorine pump if the circ pump wasn't running.

      Chlorine is exceptionally good at killing all sorts of bad stuff in water but it's also good at dissolving human flesh as well........

        Really not much to report in that news article. But as the media tends to do, if there's any news story they can attach the word "Disney" to, they'll do it. And if it's not related to The Disneyland Resort...they'll toss the name in anyway. There was some incident that took place in Downtown Anaheim, but the news still reported it as "being close to Disneyland", even though there was no connection between the incident and Disney.

          Somehow, an AP holder is to blame for this.
          "The old man's gonna knock on the sky. Listen to the sound."

          AP'er since 2004. Yup.....I'm one of THEM.

              Totally. If the same thing happened at non-Disney hotel somewhere else, there's no way the news would bother. It's the same with the measles outbreak. If those selfish parents brought their infected kid to a mall or city park, they could care less. But because it was at Disneyland, it's front page news all over the country. You'd think Disney infected everyone in the park, not those irresponsible parents.

                Chemical spills, fires, suicides, vehicle collisions, alligator attacks, cruise ship mishaps, sexual assaults, ride injuries, restaurant food poisoning, crimes by employees -- any bad news that occurs inside a "Disney bubble" is automatically magnified beyond what it would be outside the bubble. The reason is that the great majority of the world's population has an emotional perception of Disney as "safe." The psychology is similar in function (although not in magnitude) to the reaction we have to a news story of a kid run over by a car vs. a kid run over by a car that was driven by his parents.
                "With the acquisition of Marvel and now of Lucasfilm,
                Disney may have finally found the grail. You don't need
                imagination or art. All you need is a brand."
