The family of Caleb Schwab, a 10-year-old who died on the Schlitterbahn waterslide in August 2016 in Kansas City, Kansas, has released a statement concerning the recent indictment that was filed against Schlitterbahn and its former operations manager.
Caleb Schwab’s father is a state legislator in Olathe, Kansas. The statement was released from the family’s attorneys’ office:
“While we as a family continue to mourn and heal from Caleb’s passing, we wanted to again thank the community of Kansas City for its continued prayers and support. While we have no control over the investigation, we have full faith and trust in Attorney General Derek Schmidt and his office as relates to last week’s indictments, as well as any other decisions that office may make going forward. Clearly the issues with Schlitterbahn go far beyond Caleb’s incident, and we know the Attorney General will take appropriate steps in the interest of public safety.”
