Parades are an everyday staple at Disneyland but this is something you just don't see: Santa Claus falling out of his sleigh.

But that's what happened during Saturday's "A Christmas Fantasy" afternoon parade, when the sleigh apparently broke and sent him down. Luckily, like other parade performers, he was wearing a safety harness, so he wasn't injured but was just stuck there until he could be rescued. According to social media posts of the event, it looks like it happened near the Matterhorn.

A Disneyland spokesman said Monday that Santa was back doing his thing in the parade on the following day, using a different float, while his sleigh is in the shop being repaired. There's no word yet on what caused the breakdown.

Instagram user Micaela Pettigrew captured the moment, with a little dramatic flair:

"Saw Santa almost die at Disneyland today. His sleigh broke and he was hanging by his harness."

Another Disneyland fan who was watching the parade, tweeted "no more eggnog for him" after he saw the broken sleigh coming down the parade route.
