"Police said Caleb Schwab, 10, was found dead at the end of the ride in a pool. Police said Schwab died of a neck injury . . . Police were notified of the incident at about 2:30 p.m. Sunday when an off duty officer working at the park notified police dispatch that an incident had occurred on Verruckt."
"Caleb was reportedly riding the slide with two adult women, with whom he was matched on the raft. The women are from north of Hays, Kan. One suffered a broken jaw, and the other a broken bone in her face and had to have stitches in her eye. The husband of one of the women says they are also suffering emotionally. He says the women do not know exactly what happened because it happened so fast. One of them had her eyes closed. One described it as the worst day of her life.
"Police say they will not be conducting any interviews or news conferences related to this incident at this time. The family's pastor, Clint Sprague, held a news conference at 5:30 p.m., on Monday at Life Mission Church, 16111 S. Lone Elm Rd."
