A popular boat ride at Disneyland Paris is closed and under police examination after a 5-year-old boy suffered serious injuries in an accident.

The theme park said in a statement today that the boy's condition is improving but he remains hospitalized. The boy fell out of a boat yesterday on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, and the circumstances of the accident are under investigation.

The statement said the attraction is closed until further notice to allow investigators to examine it.

An official at Disneyland Paris said the ride had undergone maintenance checks the day of the accident and that this is the first incident of its kind on the Pirates ride.
