LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — A Florida woman is suing Walt Disney World claiming she was hit in the head by a bird, causing serious brain injuries while she was at the resort.

According to the Orlando Sentinel , Lisa Dixon filed the lawsuit in Orange County Circuit Court last week and is seeking damages in excess of $15,000.

The lawsuit claims Dixon suffered serious bodily injury, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, and mental anguish, among other things. She said the bird attacked her while she was walking on a dock in May 2017.

Dixon stated she does not believe Disney properly warn visitors about the possibility of being threatened by birds.
