Five people were injured Monday on Disneyland Paris' Big Thunder Mountain ride, prompting the park to close the coaster.

The accident occurred after a piece of scenery fell onto one of the ride's carriages. Of the five passengers, one was injured seriously, Reuters reports.

Thierry Bonnet, deputy prefect for the Seine-et-Marne region (Disneyland Paris' location), told Reuters that "a piece of scenery made from fiberglass and wood broke off and fell onto one of the carriages. There were 25 people on board."

The ride was closed, but the rest of the park remained open.

In February, a 77-year old woman, albeit with a pre-existing condition, died after sustaining injuries on Walt Disney World's Prince Charming Regal Carousel.
