    Disney World has seen its third death since July after a performer sustained a head injury while rehearsing for "Captain Jack's Pirate Tutorial."

    Another Disney World worker is dead after an accident last night at the Orlando park's Hollywood Studios.

    Anislav Varbanov, 30, died while rehearsing his role in the "Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular" after he sustained a head injury while doing a tumbling roll, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

    Varbanov was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    Varbanov was the third employee in the past month and a half to die while working at the tourist attraction.

    Monorail operator Austin Wuennenberg died after his train collided with another train on July 5. The 21-year-old had trauma throughout his body.

    And just last Monday, 47-year-old Mark Priest died after falling on-stage four days earlier during a show called "Captain Jack's Pirate Tutorial" in the Magic Kingdom.

    "We lost a valued cast member and our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family as we mourn his passing," Disney spokeswoman Zoraya Suarez said in a statement.
