Disneyland is the “Happiest Place on Earth,” but it can still be a frightening park-goers experience getting lost. One Swiss man learned that for hours as he stumbled across the LSD park. The 32-year-old visitor traveled with his girlfriend to Disneyland Paris before taking the drug and stumbling into the Adventureland section of the park in a lake. He entered near the Pirate Ship of Captain Hook and decided to keep swimming because at that time probably everything seemed like a great idea.
Lost man, reported
The evening came and there was no man’s sign, so he was understandably scared of his girlfriend. The Washington Post reports that at around 8:30 p.m. she approached park officials to find out about the missing person wandering around the park. Employees had already begun to close the attractions for the night, but it was going to take a search party as the sun was setting quickly.
Lost man wandering aimlessly
Le Parisien reports that the crew was at it for hours before a 44-year-old man, who asked to be identified as Benoit, got a bit of a surprise. The man was driving home from work in a nearby town called Chessy when he came face to face with a completely naked man covered in scratches. The lost man was wandering aimlessly in the middle of the road, just a mile away from Disneyland Paris. Benoit said to Le Parisien, “I stopped, got out of the car and went to meet him. I wanted to know what a naked man was doing 300 meters from my home.”
It sounds like a reasonable request from a person just trying to get home, but the naked man couldn’t remember how he got there or why he was sitting there in the buff. After telling Benoit about the acid, and a bet with his girlfriend to try the drugs which probably led to this naked swim. The good Samaritan dropped the lost man off back at the park with a fresh change of clothes and the rescuers found him around 1 a.m.
No charges pressed
Both the formerly naked man and his girlfriend were taken in for use of narcotics. They managed to get off pretty lucky after all was said and done. The charge comes down to a “rappel a la loi” which is a light punishment across the pond. After all that commotion, the citation doesn’t even end up on a person’s criminal record. But, this only occurs when the prosecutor chooses not to press charges.
