Inspectors still waiting for plans of water park
WATSON- Owners of the Cajun Lagoon, a water park where a teenager drowned last week, have not filed documents with the Louisiana Fire Marshall showing if the facility is up to code.
When Nick Kissner, 14, died at the facility, inspectors realized park operators never submitted plans. They were given 30 days to do so.
Inspectors will analyze the plans and check for any potential safety issues.
But, checks likely won't include water features since those are not regulated. The WBRZ News 2 Investigative Unit found water parks answer to virtually no one. There are no government rules in Louisiana dealing with safety and supervision of water parks.
At least one lawmaker said he plans to push legislation in 2014, setting up a system of regulation for the parks.
The official report from the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office about what happened at the park has not been finished.
