An unidentified man jumped to his death off a parking structure near Disneyland Park just past 2 a.m. on Friday, at the Mickey and Friends parking structure located at 1313 S. Disneyland Drive, according to the O.C. Coroner.

The man was taken to the UCI Medical Center, in Orange, where he died at 3:08 a.m. on Friday morning, according to the O.C. Register.

At least two other suicides have occurred at the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure since 2010. A 23-year old man from Santa Ana jumped from one of the floors to his death in April, 2012. And in October, 2010 a 61-year old man jumped to his death from the top floor of the parking structure.

Disney’s maintenance staff generally will screen off such scenes right away and the sites are decontaminated after public safety officials investigate the incidents.

In related news, the parent company of Disneyland funneled more than $900,000 into a complicated network of groups supporting Disney-friendly political candidates in four Anaheim City Council races and attacking their opponents, according to a Voice of OC. Disney’s efforts to control the Anaheim City Council failed as challengers seized two of the districts and City Councilman Jordan Brandman, who always did Disney’s bidding, was booted by the voters.

Disney’s political stock in Anaheim is now plummeting like the men who have jumped off the Mickey and Friends parking structure over the last few years.
