The popular amusement park from Sandusky, Ohio is now being investigated by State inspectors. Operators, who immediately stopped the Rapids water ride, couldn’t tell whether the boat flipped upside down or on its side.
All seven people on the boat were injured. Nearby visitors who witnessed the accident jumped to their rescue and helped the injured people get out. According to the 911 recording the caller, who was identified as someone from the ride, relates how some people were still in the water at the time.
Out of the seven injured people one of the boat passengers needed to be taken to a hospital for further medical investigations while the other six were treated at the scene.
