A 10-year-old boy has survived with only a few scrapes after he was thrown from a three-storey waterslide.
The ride had been operating for just 90 minutes on the opening day of The Wave water park in Dublin, California, ABC News reports.
Terrifying video footage shows the boy zooming down the slide before he falls off the edge and lands on his back on concrete.
The East Bay Times reports that the boy was “just shaken up” by the ordeal but otherwise in a fit physical condition, while Dublin Assistant City Manager Linda Smith confirmed that he "got up immediately and as any boy would be, he was stunned".
“I was worried if he was mentally OK, but physically he just had some scrapes," she added.
