Injuries reported after ductwork falls from ceiling at Kalahari waterpark in Sandusky

Injuries reported after ductwork falls from ceiling at Kalahari waterpark in Sandusky”

The park is now closed to visitors, Erie County Sheriff Paul Sigsworth said, and it is not clear how long it would remain shut.

Two people were taken to the hospital and three others refused treatment.

An air duct fell into the wave pool causing a pipe to burst at Kalahari about 5 minutes ago...there's a lot of people injured...praying for all the children there insane I was just there a couple weeks ago. All the injuries are considered minor. "Kalahari has shut down their pools and once they make contact with us with the intention to reopen ODA will inspect the aquatic rides for any ancillary issues", said a representative from the Ohio Department of Agriculture. The rest of the facility remained open Monday afternoon.

Authorities said a portion of a ventilation shaft - a large piece of the air conditioning duct, roughly 3 feet in diameter - came crashing down from the ceiling into the indoor wave pool and an adjacent kiddie pool, Monday afternoon. At this time, we know that three guests and two associates sustained minor injuries.

Kalahari released the following statement: "We are aware of the situation and take the safety and security of our guests very seriously". Kalahari's extensive and thorough safety protocols assisted in identifying the issue and evacuating the waterpark immediately. The operating areas meet safety standards and regulations and are safe for guests to enjoy.
