Woman Sues Disney World, Says She Suffered Traumatic Brain Injury After Being Attacked by Bird
The woman was dive-bombed by bird that struck her head, the lawsuit claims.
A woman has sued Disney World, claiming she suffered a traumatic brain injury after being attacked by a bird at the park's Polynesian Village Resort.
Part-time Florida resident Lisa Dixon was struck in the head by the bird as she walked on a dock, according to the lawsuit filed last week. She is seeking unspecified damages in excess of $15,000.
A Disney spokeswoman said the company will respond in court.
The bird's attack was allegedly so forceful it also caused several herniated discs in the woman's neck, according to the suit. Her attorney, Thomas Schmitt, said his client didn't know what type of bird attacked her.
The suit claims Disney failed to keep the dock safe and didn't warn guests about migrating birds in the area.
