Disabled man gets $8,000 after being stuck on Disney's 'Small World' ride for hours

LOS ANGELES An attorney says a disabled man was awarded $8,000 by Disneyland after the "It's A Small World" ride broke, stranding him for three hours while the theme song played continuously.

Lawyer David Geffen says Jose Martinez was the only passenger not evacuated when the ride broke down in 2009, and staffers failed to call the fire department to free him.

The ride's familiar song couldn't be turned off the entire three hours Martinez was stuck.

Geffen says Martinez uses a wheelchair, suffers from panic attacks and high blood pressure, and needed to urinate for much of the time he was stranded.

Geffen says half the award ordered Friday is for pain and suffering, and the other half for disability law violations.
