State to inspect water ride at Mountain Creek Waterpark

VERNON - State inspectors are expected to examine a water ride today at a Mountain Creek Waterpark where five people were injured.

The accident happened yesterday afternoon on the park's Gauley ride.

A spokesman for the amusement parks says the injured riders were on tubes that ran into one another and became stuck in a tunnel. The riders suffered bumps and bruises. They were treated and released from area hospitals.

The ride will be shut down until state investigators can ensure it is safe.
