An 8-year-old boy reportedly, fell 31 feet after being pushed off of a waterslide platform at Minnesota’s Apple Valley Aquatic Center, notes Newsweek.

Apple Valley Police Captain Nick Francis told KMSP. “About 70,000 people go through their water park every season, it’s been open for 20 years and we’ve had nothing near this incident take place at all”. Eyewitness reports suggest he and the boy did not interact before the incident occurred.
