Extending an example by Colding and Minicozzi (Trans Am Math Soc 356(1):283–289, 2003), we construct a sequence of properly embedded minimal disks \Sigma _i in an infinite Euclidean cylinder around the x_3-axis with curvature blow-up at a single point. The sequence converges to a non-smooth and non-proper minimal lamination in the cylinder. Moreover, we show that the disks \Sigma _i are not properly embedded in a sequence of open subsets of \mathbb {R}^3 that exhausts \mathbb {R}^3.
