It is so sad that this happened. Just the thought of a family going to spend the day having fun, only to go home without their child.
Maybe Oceans of Fun should look into hiring more experienced guards. Pretty bad when another guest was the one to pull the boy out.
I hope this doesn’t turn into another mess like the water park in wy,co 2 years ago. God bless this family.

People literally get in over their heads at these wave pools, and they overestimate their swimming skills. So sorry for this child and his family.

Adding to my post at 10:25 p.m. I realize the boy had a seizure that had nothing to do with his ability to swim.

Well let's tear down Oceans of Fun, pay the family millions and send the owners to prison like we did Schlitterbahn...
