A witness, Josephone Bevilacqua, believes that the area where the child was hurt is not safe for guests.  Bevilacqua said “as a parent, I can’t understand how rocks and water are safe.”  The park is closed indefinitely at this time.  It is unclear how exactly the girl lost her toe in in the incident as further details were not immediately available on Tuesday.
