Disneyland Resorts is being sued by a man who alleges violations of the Americans With Disabilities Act after he was trapped on Disney's "It's A Small World" ride for 40 minutes.
 
Jose Martinez, who is a quadriplegic, sued Disneyland in federal court for negligence, emotional distress and liability, claiming Disneyland didn't have proper procedures in place for evacuating disabled passengers from the ride.  Martinez alleges Disney employees left him on the ride for 40 minutes after it had stalled while staff evacuated other passengers.  He further alleges employees did not summon paramedics when his blood-pressure spiked while he was trapped on the ride.
 
Disneyland Resorts issued a statement indicating that it is accessible to all guests and has procedures in place for evacuating disabled customers.
