Transcript for Family files lawsuit after son flies off water park slide
We're back with that new lawsuit over this moment when a young boy went flying off a water slide on the first day it opened. Thankfully, thankfully he's okay. He survived but he was injured and now his parents are demanding major changes and ABC's Diane Macedo is here with that story. Good morning to you all. So for the first time we're also seeing the photos of this boy's physical injuries but his family actually says the emotional injuries were far worse. Dates back to may when we see that video. He goes flying off the slide, scrapes across the concrete. The family is suing for $2.5 million suing the city, the state and the slide manufacturers along there was an inspection done before it opened that found safety issues and the family believes those issues were not resolved before the slide opened. The city says the slide was tested and approved by the manufacturer and the state of California safety regulators as well. The manufacturer also says they did try to settle this amicably but the family did not provide medical records. The slide remains closed until it can be approved. The speed right there. Hard to watch. Problems with the slide that need to be fixed. It does. Thanks very much.
