Man Sues Cruise Line Over Missing Thumb

A lawsuit has surfaced against Disney Cruise Line from a passenger who slammed his finger in a cabin door and lost part of his thumb, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Marco Fidel Castro, a resident of Columbia, was getting ready for the captains dinner when the accident occurred.

“He was near the hallway door with his thumb on the door frame and his wife was holding the door open with her foot,” Castro’s attorney Jordan Wagner told the Sentinel. “She moved and her foot came away and he didn’t realize the door was closing. The door slammed shut with force.”

The infirmary stitched up his thumb and put the amputated piece on ice. When the ship docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Castro picked the thumb up from the infirmary and went to a land-side hospital to get his finger reattached.

It was too late.

According to the Sentinel, the suit alleges the following against Disney Cruse Line: failure to maintain cruise cabin doors in a safe manner; failure to warn anyone of the dangers associated with the cabin doors; failure to provide safety devices on the hinges of the cabin doors; failure to provide timely and adequate medical care.

Do you think Disney Cruise Line at fault for this?
