How horribly sad. Those poor parents and their family..and what they have been forced to endure.Their isn’t any amount of money on God’s green earth that can replace the look in the eye of that innocent little child, Caleb who was murdered by incredible incompetence, stupidity and sheer greed. I pray that no one else ever has to endure this horrific tragedy ever again.

So the waterpark owners are like “heartbroken over the tragedy. The safety of our staff and our guests is our top priority.” Hell no I agree with the parents about someone being negligent about this. If this happens again I bet the waterpark owners will say this again.

My dad and sister actually went on that ride six days before him. My family was their too but we didn’t go on the ride. I feel really bad for him and his family.

Why tf would you let your young child go on that jenky ass slide.? It even looks dangerous. If I had a kid they would go nowhere near that slide.

I don't want to sound too judgemental, but the parents had no right putting a law suit against any one, they should of known the risks of their son going on such a thriller ride. There are always risks when going on fast rides. I do feel their pain though, I'm no parent, but I would absolutely killed myself if I was told that my child was killed or if I had to bury my child.

I’m so sorry I would not let my kids ride that no damn way and I’m glad they sued that damn park and got their money sadly nothing will ever bring their son back but I’ve always wondered was he just too small for that ride ? What decapitated him the net wire?

The thing I’m mad about is the way this ride was made. Like who’s idea was to make some next 42 foot ride without making any type of net around the slide to stop this from happening? I mean really.I’m too scared to go on any rides anymore.now knowing that there are people who decide to make poor choices, which end with terrible results. How could the makers not see that there is a possibility someone could get severely injured? They could’ve made some type of rope, or metal/plastic net, or some type of wall so if anyone does slip they’d get caught in that place? At least they wouldn’t have to worry about potentially dying.maybe a few cuts, but really? Even near the end.some rides flip over.at least make sure that they are fully secured before going HAM on some ride. Just something I wanted to get out of my system. -Caleb is in a good place. I hope that family is doing well.💞

Brings back memories from when I was a kid. Same thing almost happened to me, it was terrifying. Luckly I pulled myself back on the slide and survived. Few years later someone actually did fall off and died and that's why they tore the one near me down. I hope it was quick for him, It was terrifying for me.

Rest in peace Kaleb. I pray for his family because I know that nobody will completely recover from the loss of loved one..especially for someone who was killed at such a young age like Kaleb was.

This whole the was scandalous it's the mom's fault! The only reason they made this such big or deal is because of the dad's status. And instead of blame the peace crap mom! They blamed everyone else! The shouldn't have gotten a dime. The only question should have bin we're was the mother.

Bottom Line it's the parents fault how the hell going to leave a child the young unattended to? Let alone in a water park that big, knowing the park has water slides like that? Getting so sick of everyone wanting to blame everything and everyone for poor parenting choices!

I cried watching this. I am thankful that the family is pushing for much needed safety regulations onbrides. I kno must b difficult to grieve so publicly, but saving future kids is the best way to honor his memory

This “accident” should never have happened.These builders had to know along with the park owners kids or anyone could get thrown from this ride. We saw dummies get thrown. What was the difference between those and live children? Some rides are obvious killers. Was it posted it could kill you? I hope these parents sue for this park and win. Then they can blow it up!!
