An autopsy is scheduled to take place on Saturday on a young girl who was found dead Friday following what seems to have been a drowning incident at a water park operated by the Tinley Park-Park District. As a result of the event, the facility will be closed on Saturday. White Water Canyon Water Park, located at 8221 West 171st Street, was scheduled to open at noon on Saturday; however, the park’s staff has announced on social media that it would be closed for the day. It is currently unknown whether or not the park will reopen on Sunday. A youngster was rescued from a pool at the park just before 4 o’clock on Friday, after having been submerged for an undetermined amount of time.
The child was lifeless when they were hauled out. On-site CPR and other lifesaving procedures were administered by the lifeguards and paramedics. According to the Will County Coroner’s office, the kid was transferred to Silver Cross Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 5:12 p.m. after being taken to the hospital.
