A Wave Pool Turned Dangerous!
This video is being shared all over the internet, after a gentle wave pool suddenly had a “Tsunami”!
It happened at the Yulong Shuiyun Water Amusement Park, in the city of Longjing in China’s northeastern Jilin Province.
The Water Amusement Park has a wave pool, which they call the “Tsunami Pool.”
But no one expected it to live up to its name!
Here is the video:
44 guests were injured, including three who suffered broken ribs or legs.
As SoraNews24 reported:
The Longjiang city government has denied early rumors that operator error was to blame, and is instead saying that its initial findings show that a power cut damaged the Tsunami Pool’s electronic equipment and caused a malfunction, though it’s not currently clear how a loss of power had the end result of making the machine-produced waves larger than intended.
The park was closed for a day for an inspection and investigation, but is reportedly now open for business again.
