News 2 Investigates: water park cited after drowning
BATON ROUGE- Cajun Lagoon, a water park where a teenager drowned earlier this week, will be required to submit plans for structures on the property.
The State Fire Marshal's Office said the facility was cited after the drowning for failing to submit required documents. Owners will have to show inspectors facility plans and be checked for any code violations.
Cajun Lagoon has been closed since the incident Tuesday afternoon. Thursday, it was unclear if it was going to open Friday.
Nick Kissner, 14, died at the park on Highway 16.
The WBRZ News 2 Investigative Unit found there are few requirements for water parks in Louisiana. But other states have a list of regulations operators must follow. Florida requires specialized training for workers and also certain emergency action plans and oversees design and construction of facilities.
