Bourne, MA (July 11, 2018) – A toddler playing at a Cape Cod water park on Tuesday suffered a serious injury. The child, identified as a 2 year old girl, was at a splash pad at Buzzards Bay. The child was going down a slide at the Splash Pad when she suffered an injury causing her to lose a toe, according to the Bourne Police Department. Paramedics rushed the girl to a hospital to receive treatment. The park was closed and the area was cordoned off while the incident was investigated.
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.
