Family of boy killed on Kansas waterslide settles with park


Terms of the deal filed in Kansas' Johnson County District Court involving Caleb Schwab's family were not released. Authorities said the Kansas City, Kansas, police investigation of Caleb's death has been turned over to the Kansas Attorney General's Office, which said through spokeswoman Jennifer Montgomery that it has accepted the case for review at the request of local prosecutors. States' regulations of waterslides and other amusement rides have faced scrutiny following Caleb's death. Kansas mandates annual inspections of permanent amusement park rides but allows private inspectors to do the checks, rather than requiring a state inspection. Schwab told lawmakers to "let it go" when their bills die or amendments fail, and that "life isn't worth wasting too much emotional energy on such things."
