Woman Falls Into Seven Seas Lagoon from Ferry Boat at Walt Disney World
Reports out of Walt Disney World tonight indicate that a woman has fallen off the top deck of the ferry boat into the the Seven Seas Lagoon. It is not known if the ferry boat was traveling to or from the Magic Kingdom when the incident happened. P
Twitter user, @Rachthom77, tweeted that she was on the ferry boat when the woman fell and the woman was eventually rescued by a rescue boat. The woman was about 300 yards from the ferry at the time of rescue.
I was on the boat when this happened. She fell off the top deck and was rescued by a rescue boat. She was about 300 yards from the ferry when she was rescued.

A guest has fallen into seven seas lagoon. The ferry boat service is currently down. The female guest has been rescued (her condition is currently unknown) transportation options to get back to TTC from MK include the monorail and buses. Please be patient.

Another report indicates that the response time was very slow most likely due to the higher than normal holiday crowds.
I think so. Response time was terrible to help them.

We were able to spot an ambulance heading to the scene right near the Magic Kingdom after the incident occured:
The ambulance zoomed past Space Mountain en route to the scene!
Since the fall, ferry boat service to and from the Magic Kingdom as well as the Ticketing & Transpiration Center has been halted. Guests can still use buses or the Monorail to get back and forth between the two locations.
Here is video of the rescue attempt:
