Man dies at Disney park    (Why is this in Texas obits, I find nothing about his being from Texas, should be in Florida obits)

The Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -

A part-time custodian at Walt Disney World died after he was swept from a platform by an elevated cable car and fell 40 feet to the ground. Raymond Barlow, 65, was on a platform for the Skyway in Fantasyland when the cable-car ride was switched on in preparation for the park's opening Sunday morning. Whoever switched it on didn't know Barlow was standing in the path of the cars, Orange County sheriff's Deputy Robert Larson said. Barlow, 65, grabbed the four-person gondola and struggled to pull himself inside. He let go when he was over a flowerbed, snapping tree branches on the way down, park employees told investigators. "He was looking for a place to fall. He didn't want to fall on the concrete, so he fell on the flowerbed," Larson said. Barlow, who was hired in September, died a short time later at Orlando Regional Medical Center.

The ride, which stretches between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, was back in operation after the accident. "We are deeply saddened by what happened and our hearts go out to the family and friends of this `cast member,"' said Disney spokeswoman Rena Callahan. "Disney puts a high priority on safety." It was the first fatality for the Orlando park since October 1989, when a woman was killed in a boat collision. A 4-year-old girl died during a ride in 1995, but an autopsy concluded the ride did not contribute to her death. A tourist at California's Disneyland was killed in a Christmas Eve accident when a metal cleat ripped loose from a ship and hit him in the head.

An inmate in the William P. Clements Jr. Unit committed suicide July 12. The Office of the Inspector General, the investigative arm for the Texas Board of Criminal Justice, sustained the suicide ruling, said Larry Todd, director of public information for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

David Barlow, 38, was serving a life sentence for murder and burglary of a habitation, according to TDCJ documents. His was the third suicide at the Clements Unit since May.

James Jones, 29, committed suicide on May 30.

Thomas Robertson, 33, killed himself on May 15, according to the documents.

Jones was serving a life sentence for murder, aggravated robbery, burglary of a motor vehicle, theft of an automobile and burglary of a habitation.

Robertson was serving a 35-year sentence for three counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child. All three men hanged themselves, according to the TDCJ documents.

"We do not believe there is anything of an outside nature that caused these to occur that close together, especially when we are dealing with a large prison unit," Todd said.
