Man Falls Off Tower of Terror Ride at Disney

Talk about a fright. A man was treated for minor injuries at Disney's California Adventure Park after he fell 20 feet while waiting to get on the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride.

The 20-year-old was taken to a hospital but later released, according to police.

The man was apparently with friends when he jokingly said someone could fall and tossed a leg over a railing on the ride's second-floor platform. Except the joke turned to reality when he lost his balance and fell.

Police say there was a likelihood the man had been drinking.

Rising more than 180 feet, the Tower of Terror depicts a haunted elevator ride through an old hotel.
