Stein (dpa / lby) - Three children injured themselves in a leisure pool in the Middle Franconian district of Fürth because an excavator crashed into a water slide. During construction work, the excavator had damaged the tube of the double slide, the police announced on Wednesday. The excavator driver then immediately sounded the alarm. Before the slide in the town of Stein could be closed after the incident on Tuesday afternoon, three children used the facility.
They suffered cuts and abrasions on the slide, which was about 20 by 30 centimeters damaged. Two of the children were taken to hospitals. There they were reportedly treated on an outpatient basis. The police are investigating for negligent bodily harm.
