A 23-year-old man has died at a waterpark in Washington. According to TIME, Vijayarengan Srinivasan, who relocated to the state from India just two weeks ago, drowned at Wild Waves Water Park in Washington.
A police report suggests that lifeguards failed to respond to initial calls for assistance, thinking instead the children were playing a prank. Another lifeguard also indicated she thought she saw a body but did not see one when she looked more closely and did not pursue it further.
The body was discovered 15 minutes later after a third lifeguard jumped in to search for another patron's lost glasses.
This is the second known death at a waterpark in the past several weeks. On Aug. 7, 10-year-old Caleb Schwab was killed in an accident on the Verrückt water slide at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City, Kan.
