Default DCL Youth Host Arrested For Groping Child

Yikes! This scares the hell out of me!! I talk to my 7 year old all the time about stranger danger and the like but this is just awful. We're going on our 5th Diz cruise next year and we were on the Magic around the time this happened. No where is safe these days. Just awful!!!

I'm glad there's video footage to make the case clear cut. The poor kid - he will never want to go into the Oceaneer lab again and may have Disney ruined for him. So sad.

Without the video, no action likely would have been taken. Watch Hassan Minajís video about the laws (or lack thereof) on the high seas.

I think it depends. That kind of allegation leaves Disney extremely vulnerable if they don't address it somehow, regardless of maritime law. All it takes is it happening again, this time on camera or with witnesses, and it surfacing that somebody else had filed the same complaint so Disney knew about it. Game over for company's reputation.

I really hope this child will be able to recover from this horrible event without any long term damage.

I am so glad Disney had that on video. The kid should not have to testify and with the video he wonít have to go through any scenarios of people wondering if this is a misunderstanding over accidental contact or if he or his parents are exaggerating what happened. The whole thing is on video. Case closed. Child and family can (hopefully) now start the process of recovery.

Can't believe how much Disney has been able to keep this under wraps so far. Besides this article I haven't come across anything else. Bet that all changes by tomorrow. The media seems to love any negative Disney story. Thoughts and prayers to this family.

This demon got off! The family didn't want their child to have to testify so he goes free. Thought there was video? This is just awful!
