TODAY — IS THE FIRST DAY THE PARK HAS BEEN OPEN SINCE 10- YEAR-OLD CALEB SCHWAB WAS KILLED ON THE PARK’S “VERRUCKT” WATER SLIDE. NBC NEWS IS REPORTING THE BOY WAS DECAPITATED. AT -168- FEET TALL — WITH A 17-STORY DROP — “VERRUCKT” IS BILLED AS THE WORLD’S TALLEST WATER SLIDE… IT REMAINS CLOSED FOR THE SEASON. OUR CHASE MOFFITT IS DIGGING INTO THE NEW DETAILS… HE CONTINUES OUR COVERAGE LIVE. JOHN AND MALORIE. IT APPEARS, ACCORDING TO REPORTS, THAT CALEB SCHWAB SUSTAINED THE FATAL INJURY AFTER WITNESSES SAID HE WENT AIRBORNE OUT OF A THREE PERSON RAFT. THE RIDE REMAINS CLOSED TODAY AS THE A PORTION OF THE KANSAS CITY PARK RE-OPENED TODAY — YOU CAN SEE CREWS REMOVING THE NETTING ABOVE THE SLIDE. BUT SADLY, THIS ISN’T THE ONLY INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY THIS WEEK — IN TENNESSEE THREE GIRLS FEEL FROM A FERRIS WHEEL AND WERE BADLY INJURED. THIS ALL COMING AFTER, RIGHT HERE IN OMAHA BACK IN MAY, A YOUNG GIRL SUFFERED CRITICAL INJURIES ON A CARNIVAL RIDE. LATE BREAKING WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTING A DOCUMENT RELEASED BY A STATE AGENCY SAYS THAT ALL RIDES AT THE KANSAS CITY KANSAS WATER PARK, SCHLITTERBAHN PASS PRIVATE INSPECTIONS IN JUNE, INCLUDING THE VERRUCKT WATER SLIDE WHERE 10 YEAR OLD CALEB SCHWAB DIED SUNDAY. A SPOKESWOMAN FOR THE WATER PARK DECLINED TO DISCUSS THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE BOY’S DEATH BUT OFFERED THIS STATEMENT EARLIER IN THE WEEK. “WE HONESTLY DON’T KNOW. WHETS HAPPENED. THATS WHY AN INVESTIGATION, A FULL INVESTIGATION IS NECESSARY. WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT’S HAPPENED.” SEVERAL GUESTS TOLD NBC THE STRAPS ON THE SLIDE’S RAFTS WERE NOT WORKING PROPERLY AND AT LEAST TWO PEOPLE WHO’VE RIDDEN THE WATER SLIDE SAY WHEN THEY RODE, THEIR STRAPS SNAPPED OR POPPED OFF. IN TENNESSE, RIDES TUESDAY AT THE GREENE COUNTY FAIRE IN GREENEVILLE WERE SHUT DOWN AS INPSECTORS WORKED TO FIGURED OUT WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THREE CHILDREN FELL FROM A FERRIS WHEEL, ONE SUFFERING A TBI AND THE 16 YEAR OLD SENT TO THE HOSPITAL WITH CRITICAL INJURIES. FOR CHILDREN ON CARNIVAL AND AMUSEMENT TYPE RIDES — IT’S BEEN A WHIRLWIND OF A SUMMER — REMEMBER BACK TO THE CINCO DE MAYO FESTIVITIES — LITTLE LULU GILREATH WAS INJURED WHEN HER HAIR WAS CAUGHT IN THE KING’S CROWN RIDE, PULLING OFF PART OF HER SCALP. SHE’S ON THE RECOVERY. CHASE, ARE THERE ANY UDPATES WITH LULU’S SITUATION? YES, IN FACT THE FAMILY STARTED A CHANGE DOT ORG PETITION CALLING FOR QUOTE: “A COMPREHENSIVE LAW REGULATING CARNIVAL RIDE SAFETY” BECAUSE THEY SAY THERE IS NO NATIONAL LAW ON HOW CARNIVAL RIDES ARE SETUP, MAINTAINED AND OPERATED. THANK YOU!
