Witnesses have described the horrific moment a 10-year-old boy was ‘DECAPITATED’ on the world’s biggest water slide.They saw Caleb Schwab flung from the Kansas City water park ride known as the Verruckt – which means “insane” in German. One witness – who saw the ride streaked in blood – said she saw Caleb’s distraught brother scream at a park worker: “I just saw my little brother die because of one of your attractions!”
Her husband Esteban Castaneda said he heard loud booms coming from the ride before he saw a body wash down the slide following a raft. He said a lifeguard tried to hold the crowd back – and told him there was nothing he could do when he tried to help him.
That was the point he realised the boy appeared to have been decapitated, he said. The front seat of the raft was empty, he told ABC7 , suggesting that is where Caleb was seated.
Local police said last night Caleb suffered a “fatal neck injury at the end of the ride”. Two other women on the ride suffered facial injuries – one describing it as the “worst day of her life”. Castaneda’s wife Leslie told the Kansas City Star she saw the ride streaked in blood shortly after the gruesome incident
