Doctor Dies When Her Disney Meal Goes Terribly Wrong

Disney parks might be renowned as the "Magical Kingdom," but for one unfortunate  woman, it became the site of her untimely demise. It's rare to encounter tales of genuine peril within the confines of Disney World in Orlando, yet tragedy struck when New York doctor Kanokporn Tangsuan suffered a fatal allergic reaction after dining at one of its restaurants.

Her passing came as an absolute shock, especially considering that the restaurant had assured Tangsuan  and her husband, Jeffrey Piccolo, that they could safely accommodate her severe nut and dairy allergies. Unfortunately, this assurance proved false, leading Piccolo to pursue legal action against Disney for his wife's death.

From Western Journal:

Piccolo said he, his wife and his mother visited the Disney-owned and operated Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant on Oct. 5, Business Insider reported.

The three were in Florida on vacation and decided to visit the theme park

When the trio sat down at their table, Piccolo’s lawsuit claims, his wife was cautious about ordering due to her extreme allergies to nuts and dairy and even sent the waiter into the kitchen to make sure the chef could prepare her food safely.

The lawsuit claims the waiter made multiple assurances that the establishment would safely accommodate Tangsuan and so she ordered from the menu.

According to the lawsuit, once her meal arrived, several food items did not have allergy-free flags on them to indicate they were safe to eat.

Piccolo’s lawsuit claims his wife again inquired whether the food she was about to consume was allergen-free and she was assured it was safe.

She consumed the meal and she, her husband and her mother-in-law left.

According to the lawsuit, the three had dinner about 8 p.m. on the night in question. About 45 minutes later, Tangsuan collapsed and suffered difficulty breathing.

She self-administered an epinephrine pen and was transported to a local hospital where she died.
