Lake Buena Vista Accident
The Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon, which takes place along Lake Buena Vista, is a popular event for both casual and serious runners as well as those who just enjoy spending more time in the Disney universe. This past Sunday, nearly 15,000 people attended the event, which begins at Magic Kingdom and ends at Epcot after taking runners on a 13.1 mile course.
A family was enjoying a beautiful vacation at the Lake Buena Vista Resort Village & Spa on Thursday when something unexpected and heart-stopping occurred. The family, which had traveled down from Michigan to enjoy the beautiful weather and sun of Lake Buena Vista, was packing up to go home. All their bags had been loaded onto a luggage trolley and the family left the room and began to proceed to the front desk to check out. Unbeknownst to the parents, one of the children, an unnamed 9-year-old, stayed behind in the room. The parents quickly realized that not all their children were accounted for and one of the other family members was sent back to the room to retrieve the wayward youth.
