Video: Boy is Launched Off Slide at Newly Opened Dublin Water Park


A 10-year-old boy managed to walk away with a few scratches Saturday after he was thrown from a slide at Dublin’s newly opened, $43 million water park, The Wave, according to the East Bay Times.

The Emerald Plunge, a three-story slide with an 80-degree angle drop, had only been running for 90 minutes prior to the incident.

A video from the East Bay Times shows the 10-year-old’s feet leave the water ride, then his back scrapes along its edge before he lands on the concrete next to the slide. In a matter of a few seconds he’s standing up as lifeguards run to help.

The boy’s parents chose not to have police or fire officials show up. Their son only appeared to have a scratched shoulder that was treated with first aid.
