This was the first day a California amusement park opened.
The boy fell out of the Emerald Plunge water slide at the $43 million water park The Wave Saturday.
He was launched from the three-story slide, landing on the concrete next to the ride. He suffered a scratched shoulder but did not need to go to the hospital.
The slide plunges at an 80-degree angle before flattening out at the bottom.
Three of the park’s six slides were closed Sunday as officials investigated.
