DUBLIN, CALIFORNIA (May 30, 2017) – A 10 year old boy suffered injuries on Saturday after he flew off a water slide at the Emerald Glen Park in Dublin, according to a local news source. (map)
The water park, located on Central Parkway, had opened on Saturday, May 27th after reportedly fixing over 17 safety violations found by a Cal/OSHA inspector. Around noon, a 10 year old boy went down the Emerald Plunge slide and slipped off the slide, landing on concrete.
The boy suffered minor injuries and his parents took him to a local hospital as a precaution. The slide was shut down pending further inspection, as was another slide with a steep drop. An investigation is being conducted to ascertain how the slide passed safety inspections.
