According to reports, the collapse occurred because the ride had worn out and weakened over time, however, the park’s management said it happened because it was overloaded at the time, adding that maintenance was carried out on the slide about nine months ago.
The deputy mayor of Surabaya, Armuji, called for the immediate inspection of other amusement parks in the region to prevent similar accidents from taking place in the future.
He also reminded the owners of amusement parks to take responsibility and follow necessary safety measures to protect the well-being of their visitors.
The water park was closed after the incident and the police investigation into the cause of the slide collapse is ongoing.
