LOUSIVILLE – July 30, 2018
13 people were evacuated from a boat, as it got stuck at the amusement park in Louisville, local media reports.
Louisville news outlets cited a statement from Kentucky Kingdom that said the boat was part of the Mile High Falls, a shoot-the-chute water ride. The statement said the boat was headed back to the station Saturday evening when it got lodged along the side of a water-filled trough.
Park officials said riders were evacuated from the boat within 10 minutes. Five passengers went to the park's Health Services Center for evaluation. Officials said one declined treatment, two were treated for minor injuries and the other two requested transport to a local hospital.
