So far, two defendants have settled with the family of a 10-year-old child who died on the world’s tallest waterslide.

On August 7, 2016, Caleb Schwab was riding down Verruckt, at the Schlitterbahn Kansas City waterpark, when he was killed. Details of the accident have been tightly guarded, and portrayals have ranged from a serious neck injury to a decapitation.

The child’s father, Kansas state legislator Scott Schwab, and his wife Michelle secured a settlement with two defendants – the owner and operator of the waterpark; and manufacturer Zebec of North America, which made the rafts on Verruckt. Payments will be distributed to their three surviving sons – who are all under 13 years of age. According to local reports, the payments will be made over the children’s lifetimes. Amounts have not been disclosed.

The law firm representing the Schwabs – Bartimus Frickleton Robertson – said lawsuits are still pending against a mechanical engineer who inspected and tested the slide, and the contracting company that designed and built the waterslide.

Schlitterbahn announced in late 2016 that it would be demolishing the waterslide when investigations are final.
