DEAD POOL: KANSAS CITY RISING TIDE OF LOCALS KILLED AROUND WATER PARKS!!!
It seems that Kansas City area water parks are the latest threat to local lives as crime rises around the metro and even youngsters seeking amusement aren't safe from tragedy.
Here's a roundup:
Of course the decapitation aboard Schlitterbahn Verrückt is the first tragedy to come to mind.
But let's not forget that this year a teen was shot inside Kansas City's Bay Water Park and the year before that a 14-year-old girl was MURDERED at the very same water park.
This year the "splash pad" in Overland Park and Super Splash USA in Raytown closed early for safety reasons and to avoid any mishaps.
And along the lines of waterbound death . . . The drowning in Shawnee claiming the life of a young person just last night deserves mention.
Sadly, all this Kansas City tragedy surrounding water recently brings to mind the legend of La Llorona . . .
The tale is tragic and contends that the sins of parents and ancestors live to haunt lives of youngsters to this day . . .
And while we reject superstitions while still respecting folk tales . . . There is no denying that Kansas City continues to drown in tragedy during this bloody Summer and water parks provide no respite from current tribulation.
