ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A boat filled with guests at Walt Disney World had to be evacuated after it took on water. No one was hurt, and the passengers aboard the Jungle Cruise boat got off the vessel safely Thursday. Firefighters from the resort’s private government were called to the scene at the Magic Kingdom.

The attraction was opened a short time later. Disney officials didn’t say how many passengers were on the boat or what caused it to take on water. A photo posted on Twitter by a passenger showed other passengers standing on seats with water covering the boat’s bottom.
