DUBLIN (KRON) — A popular water slide at a brand new East Bay water park is closed for a third day on Monday after a boy was ejected from it on Saturday.
Today the manufacturer of the slide, which is owned and operated by the city of Dublin, will be at the park to help determine what contributed to the problem.
Kron4’s Lydia Pantazes is live at the water park providing live updates.

Video of the incident shows the 10-year-old boy falling out of the Emerald Plunge water slide and onto the cement.
When the boy was in the run-out area, which comes after the initial steep plunge portion of the slide, he fell out.
Luckily, the boy walked away with only scratches and minor injuries.
The boy’s parents took him to a hospital where he was treated and released.
