A man is recovering after being injured while cleaning the roof of Disneyland's Space Mountain ride.

The accident did not shut down the ride. The 37-year-old man was in a chair Wednesday when it came loose from an anchor.

Disneyland said he slipped and slid down the roof about 20 to 30 feet, breaking a leg, his right collarbone and several ribs.

According to fire officials, a roof barrier kept the man from falling to the ground.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
