Disneyland Paris worker commits suicide
An employee at Disneyland Paris committed suicide on Sunday. A trade union claims that the death was because of "humiliating" working conditions. The unnamed man, who was in his 30s, threw himself under a train in Esbly, near the Disneyland park just outside Paris.
Eurodisney confirms that the man had been employed in the theme park since 2004, where he worked in the kitchens.
He had recently returned to work after ten months of sick leave.
During his six years at Disneyland he made two complaints of workplace harassment, according to the Force Ouvrière trade union.
France has seen a spate of work-related suicides in recent months, including seven at telephone company France Télécom since the beginning of 2010.
