On Sunday, August 7th, 2016, 10-year-old boy, Caleb Thomas Schwab suffered a fatal neck injury on the Verruckt water slide at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City, Kansas. The waterslide is the tallest in the world and features a 50 foot drop. The ride is extremely dangerous and the opening was delayed several times due to safety issues. The raft seats 3 people and the weight of the combined riders should be between 400-550 pounds. Caleb was seated with two women. Chances are that the weight of the riders did not reach 400 pounds. Caleb's seatbelt came undone and he was launched from the raft and most likely broke his neck on the safety net. This ride is dangerous and should be torn down to avoid any other terrible tragedies like this.
