Disneyland shuts down cooling towers after Legionnaires' cases

Anaheim, Calif - Two cooling towers at Disneyland are shut down after an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease.

The Orange County Health Department says nine people who visited the park in September are affected.

Legionnaires' disease is a severe form of Pneumonia. People usually contract the disease by breathing in mist from water that has Legionella bacteria.

The towers at Disneyland have been treated with chemicals to destroy the bacteria. They will stay shut down until health experts can confirm they're safe.

The test results are expected in about two weeks.
