Child Falls from balcony onto savannah at Kidani
I was returning to my room around 6:30 this afternoon and saw an ambulance next to one of the buildings on the savannah. I asked one of the staff and they said a child had fallen from their room balcony to the savannah. Bits and pieces say the child was under six and should be ok.

That's terrifying-- we're staying there in Nov. and my DS is pretty much Houdini. Hope the little one is okay.

Could you take a pic of your balcony railing and post it please

Curious how that happened, the railings are pretty high, must have climbed on a table or chair to get a better look.

or the parent had the child sitting on the rail and he fell..

Fixed the above image so it can be better seen.

those railings are high enough that the child and or parent was not doing what they should have been. I have stayed there many times and never worried about falling over the railing....

all it would take is the child to stand on a chair to be able to climb on the rail. My kids could figure out how to climb on anything. That is why we never left them alone on the balcony....... hope all is well!

Thanks - didn't realize it was upside down. My phone corrects for that automatically.

Still nothing on local news sites.

It's nice that the giraffe seems genuinely concerned for the child's well being. I love Disney!

(seriously I hope the little one is ok!!! didn't mean to be flip...)

Correction. The child fell from a room balcony at Jambo - viewable from Kidani where the pict was taken.

Curious: I was just at Kidani and there was a separation zone below the balcony with a fenced and camera monitored "warning track". You could not "fall onto the Savannah" there.

Is that not the case at Jambo?

Oh - and if this was a case of a child on the balcony without a parent - remember to engage the extra lock located up high out of child reach on your balcony door!

Sometimes my eyes read ahead before my mind catches up. This time, my eyes saw the words bits and pieces and child, and I thought the worst had happened. Gotta stop reading so fast.
