A 12-year-old boy died Sunday on a Kansas water slide billed as the world's largest.
The accident happened at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City, Officer Cameron Morgan said.
A Schlitterbahn Waterpark spokeswoman said the child died on the park's main attraction, the Verruckt. People can reach speeds as fast as 70 mph while going down the 168-foot water slide.
Authorities have not released details about the accident or the child's identity.
The park was closed Sunday and will be closed Monday while officers conduct a death investigation.
The park's website says riders must be at least 54 inches tall.
