An employee at Disneyland Paris was found dead inside the Phantom Manor haunted house attraction.
The body of a 45-year-old father, who worked for the theme park for 14 years, was discovered at the haunted house attraction at around 10:00 a.m. on April 2.
Police are investigating the worker’s death, but believe he may have been electrocuted while doing maintenance work on the attraction. According to Metro, he was working on the lighting in the haunted house when he died.
Patrick Maldideier, a representative for Disneyland’s staff union, said in a statement that the man was well-liked with his co-workers and was “always smiling.”
A spokesperson for the park said the staff was “deeply saddened” by the man’s death, and offered condolences to his family.
The Phantom Manor was closed upon the discovery of the worker’s body. The attraction may be closed for several days while police continue the investigation.
