Families aboard the Little Mermaid ride at Disney’s California Adventure got a bit more than they bargained for a couple of weekends ago when the animatronic Ursula lost her head – literally – in the middle of a tour.

The patron who shot and posted the video went on the record for the Huffington Post, stating that some children cried at what must have been a pretty arresting sight.

“Immediately after we got off we were ushered out along with everyone else, and the employees looked very concerned. Many people had seen Ursula decapitated, including kids who understandably were upset.”

Quite so. Although, I mean…comeuppance and all that.

Still, I have to agree with the woman, who concluded her statement saying “It was a pretty freaky thing to see.”
