Emergency corespondents were called, and monorail riders had to be evacuated through the hatch door in the roof as the car could not drive to the monorail station.
One Twitter user sent out the following note from inside the monorail that night:
Literally stuck on a monorail at Disney, lighting struck and we immediately stopped. I’m convinced that I’m going to die.
So scary! Disney plans to release a statement about what happened soon.
