LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. —

Officials say a tourist from the United Kingdom lost two fingertips on his right hand while riding on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom in Florida.

The incident happened Thursday morning.

Bo Jones of the Reedy Creek Fire Department told Orlando station WKMG (http://bit.ly/TWVJOu ) the man lost the tips of his ring and pinky fingers and was taken to a hospital. His name was not released and his condition wasn't available.

Officials say it was unclear how the incident happened.

Disney officials stopped the ride and checked it out. The ride was confirmed safe and reopened later Thursday.
