A man was killed after getting out of boat at the wrong time.
Read about the story on CNN.

That is really bad. They should have stations set up through the course of the ride where people can't see the workers but the workers can see the people. So if something happens, someone will be able to at least attempt to do something.

It really sucks for Disney, expecially since most will blame them for that persons stupidity.

Anyone ever find out why he got out? I wonder what language he speaks. Perhaps he couldn't read the "don't stand up signs"?

This is an inherit problem with these kinds of rides. As a result of not having a lapbar, some michieveous riders may have too much freedom. I think I can speak for all riders and encourage everyone to sit down and remain seated until the conclusion of the ride. I hope this accident doesn't become another bad story on the dangers of going to the amusement park.

As for the first comment I thought that Disney would have cameras set up all through the park including their rides to check for stupid things like this.
