The incident occurred shortly after the park opened. Fire and rescue were deployed to the Main Street, USA, area of the theme park around 8:30 a.m. local time.

“At Disneyland park this morning, due to the high winds, a light pole blew over, injuring a few guests,” the company told the outlet in a statement. “Unfortunately, one guest was transported to the hospital.”
