Kansas plans full audit of water park's inspection records

  Kansas plans full audit of water park's inspection records Kansas plans to conduct a full audit of a water park's inspection records before it reopens this spring after criminal charges were filed over the decapitation of a 10-year-old boy on the world's tallest waterslide there in 2016. The state Department of Labor said Wednesday that it will review reports from daily inspections of rides by park staff at the Schlitterbahn park in Kansas City, Kansas, before it is scheduled to reopen May 25 for its annual season. A state law enacted last year after Caleb Schwab's death requires amusement parks to keep daily reports on their rides and to give them annual inspections.

Another executive is charged with manslaughter.

A Kansas grand jury indicted Henry and Schooley men on allegations that Henry made a "spur of the moment" decision to build the Verruckt — touted as the world's tallest waterslide — and that he and Schooley lacked technical or engineering expertise in amusement park rides.

Prosecutors argue that the ride violated "nearly all aspects" of longstanding standards established by the American Society for Testing and Materials.

"In fact, the design and operation of the Verruckt complied with few, if any, of the industry safety standard," the indictment states.

The raft Caleb was riding on went airborne and hit an overhead loop on the slide.

Schlitterbahn spokeswoman Winter Prosapio said in an earlier statement that the indictment "is filled with information that we fully dispute."
