This is so unsettling.

Disneyland Paris has confirmed the death of a worker whose body was discovered at the park's haunted house.

The 45-year-old man, who has not yet been named, is believed to have been electrocuted while working in the Phantom Manor attraction — the French version of the Haunted Mansion — on Saturday morning.

According to park officials, the staff discovered the body between 8 am and 9 am, right before the park was open to the public. The ride, which features ghosts and zombies, was immediately shut down to guests.

The worker was a father from east Paris who had been employed at the park since 2002. He was reportedly trying to fix the ride's lighting at the time of his death, when a electricity malfunction occurred.

An initial examination suggested the cause of death was "accidental death by electrocution," but police are investigating the incident and are interviewing other staff members.

A spokesperson for Euro Disney said the park was "deeply saddened" by the death, extending their thoughts "to the family and relatives" of the worker.

The ride is expected to reopen on Wednesday. Our hearts go out to the worker's family at this devastating time.
