My favorite Skyway incident story comes from author David Koenig (so take it with a grain of salt, but it sounds reasonable).
One day in the 80’s, a guest was riding the Skyway from Fantasyland and happened to see a purse and a leather jacket lying alongside the track of the Matterhorn when their bucket passed through the mountain. Being a conscientious sort, they reported this to the Skyway attendant in Tomorrowland when they got to the station on the other side, thinking likely the owner of said items would want them back, so could be collected and taken to lost and found, and the guests from Skyway went about their day.
Unfortunately, in the transfer of information from Tomorrowland back to the Fantasyland station, in a case of mishearing the words, a purse and a leather jacket alongside the Matterhorn track became a person in a leather jacket.
So, of course, at hearing this the Fantasyland Skyway operators call Matterhorn and are like, SHUT DOWN NOW. So it was that worried Matterhorn employees had to do an E-Stop and send people out to walk the track, convinced they were going to find a corpse up near the top of the attraction that somehow went unnoticed/missing without report from other guests at some point in the past 20 minutes. No report is made of their reaction at finding what was actually wrong.
Here’s another nice photo from Disneyland, I don’t remember this entrance structure myself:
