ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — A man died near Walt Disney World by falling into a vat of oil and grease byproduct Wednesday morning, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office responded to a Reedy Creek energy facility near Disney’s Animal Kingdom shortly after midnight
Deputies report two men, including a 61-year-old man, were working at the facility, emptying oil and grease byproduct into a vat when the 61-year-old slipped, the Sentinel reports.
While witnesses attempted to help him get out, the fumes from the oil and grease byproduct overwhelmed the 61-year-old, allowing him to sink deeper.
The sheriff’s office has not released names.
