PARIS (AP) -- Police say a cleaning man at Disneyland Paris amusement park has died after a ride he was working was accidentally turned on.
The 53-year-old employee of a park subcontractor was severely injured while working on the "It's A Small World" attraction and taken by helicopter to a hospital where he died.
Police say a preliminary investigation indicates the worker got trapped beneath a boat on the ride when it was inadvertently turned on before dawn Wednesday.
A Disneyland Paris spokesman said the ride has been closed until further notice as the police investigation continues.
The park is one of Europe's biggest tourist attractions.
