One young girl continued to “bleed all over” after a horrific water slide accident injured her genitals.
The eight-year-old was riding Nov. 22 at WhiteWater World, Dreamworld’s sister park.
She and her siblings were on the Fully 6 slides when the young emerged from the water with blood pouring out.
According to her mother, she had a serious vaginal tear, she reports Courier email.
‘She is crying, in pain and bleeding all over. They didn’t take it seriously, ”her mother said.
After the accident, the girl was seen by a registered nurse and paramedic in the park before an ambulance was called.
“The injury was reported to Workplace Health and Safety Queensland by WhiteWater World after the guest’s hospitalization and an internal investigation is continuing,” the theme park said.
“Our thoughts remain with the guest and her family and we wish her a full and speedy recovery.”
The injury is believed to have been sustained by the ride’s water pressure, reports news.com.au.
The Queensland family is considering legal action against Dreamworld after the terrifying incident.
WhiteWater World describes the Fully 6 ride consisting of “different thrill levels”.
It includes open air, partially enclosed, enclosed with lighting effects and “all steep for the ultimate slide experience”.
You must be at least 1.2 meters tall to drive and weigh a maximum of 120 kilograms.
“Ride is not suitable for pregnant guests. Only a few riders per slide ”, it says.
A WhiteWater World spokeswoman said in a statement to news.com.au that the theme park “recognizes the injury suffered by the guest in question.”
“It can be confirmed that the guest met all of the manufacturer’s requirements for the attraction and was given detailed and repeated instructions on how to position herself in front of the slide, including a physical demonstration by a slide operator,” added the water park.
Earlier this summer, charges were filed after four people died in a horrific amusement park accident.
Cindy Low, Kate Goodchild, Luke Dorsett and Roozi Araghi were all killed on the Thunder River Rapids ride at the Dreamworld resort on Australia’s Gold Coast in October 2016.
The four victims all suffered fatal injuries after the river ride malfunctioned and caused a collision between two rafts.
