Family Films Faulty Safety Strap On Verruckt Water Slide

Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC || 9-Aug-2016

The death of a child at a Kansas waterpark has caused others to come forward with similar stories of scary encounters on the waterslide. According to authorities, the 10-year-old boy killed at the Schlitterbahn in Kansas City, died of a fatal neck injury sustained on the Verruckt, the world’s tallest waterslide. More riders are speaking out with their concerns when they took the plunge on the Verruckt.

One concerning complaint has come from an Omaha family who filmed a safety harness breaking during the ride. The family told the waterpark workers about the busted strap but they did nothing. The family watched the same cart go back onto the rotation and decided to post a concern on the waterpark’s social media page. The family claims they never heard from Schlitterbahn and did not think too much of it until they heard about the tragic death of the 10-year-old boy this past Sunday. Now they are coming forward, sharing their story and the video. The family is also sharing that their 9-year-old son went on the slide and was never measure to confirm he was 54-inches tall. The Omaha family, along with others, are asking that the ride be shut down for good.
