Video shows child being thrown from slide on water park's opening day

As ABC 7 reports, the $43 million water park was having its opening day, and it immediately closed the slide known as the Emerald Plunge, as well as another slide next to it.

Park officials say 10-year-old will be okay.

Video obtained by The Mercury News shows a 10-year-old getting thrown off a ride at "The Wave", an amusement park that opened in Dublin, California on Saturday. "I'm really sorry for what happened today but I think this will be a lesson for people and they will take the necessary precautions". "They rode that edge for a little bit and then they got scraped up on the cement", James Rodems said, parks and rec director said.

The ride had only been operating for about 90 minutes before the accident, and will now stay shut down, along with The Wave's other rides until the matter has been investigated.

A boy fell off a slide at a water park that just opened in Dublin. Park officials said they had contacted slide manufacturer WhiteWater West Industries as well as Cal-OSHA to assess the slide.

The child skids across the concrete next to the "emerald plunge" slide.
