Schaudenfreude Of The Day
A wave pool in China goes on the blink!
"According to reports, a malfunction at a wave pool in China caused a freak wave to injure 44 people.
The accident occurred at the Shuiyun Water Park in Jilin Province, in north-eastern China. It’s a part of something called the Yulong Bay Scenic Area, which opened in 2015. Also included in the park is a glass-bottom bridge, a theme park, and horseback riding tours.
The park’s official statement is at odds with the tally of injuries being reported. “It was caused by a mechanical fault,” said a park official. “Only around 10 people were injured. “The wave pool was closed for a day for repairs. It’s already been fixed and will be open tomorrow.”
According to the South China Morning Post, five people were sent to the hospital for a variety of injuries, included fractured ribs."
No word yet if someone is for hacking into the computer operating system...but if so, my money is on the SCUMM gang as the perps!
