Near Drowning at Park

Tulsa, OK – Boy, 6, nearly drowns at Tulsa water park

TULSA, Okla. (AP) A 6-year-old boy is in serious condition after a near drowning at a Tulsa water park.

Medics responded about 5:40 p.m. yesterday to the Big Splash Water Park in Tulsa.

Emergency Medical Services Authority spokeswoman Tina Wells says medics provided life support care to the boy at the park and then transported him in serious condition to a Tulsa hospital.

The boy's name was not immediately released.

A manager at the park Mark Fritts declined to comment on the incident but says he called the hospital Saturday evening and was told the boy was recovering well.
