Legionnaires’ disease is a severe case of pneumonia caused by Legionella bacteria. This bacteria grows in water and when the droplets get into the air, people can breathe them and get sick. Legionnaires’ disease is not spread by person to person contact.
We believe that the people got sick from two Disneyland cooling towers. These towers were found to contain Legionella bacteria. The towers are located near the New Orleans Square Train Station within 100 feet of guests. The cooling towers are now shut down and are no longer a risk.
All of the victims were between the ages of 52 and 94. Health officials visited hotels and businesses in the area and investigated whether it was still a threat and how many people came down with it.
Our legal teams have been involved in other Legionnaire cases. The disease is caused by bacteria in water systems such as air conditioners, cooling towers, mist sprayers and hot tubs. Legionnaires’ disease is more likely occur in large buildings because of the complex plumbing systems involved. Infections occur when people inhale water droplets that contain Legionella bacteria. Outbreaks have occurred from cooling towers, as with the recent Disney outbreak. The bacteria can also be found on cruise ships, in swimming pools, physical therapy equipment, grocery store mist machines and hospitals and hotels water systems.
