A man in his 50s reportedly jumped to his death from a parking garage at Disneyland in California on Saturday night, reports said.

The incident was reported to police around 9 p.m. local time, according to ABC 7. Eyewitnesses said the streetcar was shut down as a result and park visitors had to walk back to their cars while police arrived at the scene.

The Orange County Coroner’s Office also responded to the scene, police told the outlet.

The incident comes on the same day as CEO Bob Iger’s visit to the theme park. Iger was seen in the company of Disney Parks President Josh D’Amaro. Videos on Twitter show Disney guests applauding and cheering for the CEO, with some even speaking one-on-one with Iger.
