WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin Dells resort is being sued by a Michigan family that claims a teenage boy was injured on a ride that the business knew was unsafe.

The lawsuit seeking damages was filed Wednesday in Sauk County Circuit Court on the teen’s behalf. The Wisconsin State Journal (https://bit.ly/1ICwBkk ) reports the lawsuit claims the boy was injured at the Kalahari resort in June 2012 on an indoor water slide that drops riders from a trap-door chamber into one of two looping slides.

The family’s attorney says the ride, known as the Sahara Sidewinders, imposed an unreasonable risk of injury to Kalahari’s guests. He adds the resort knew about the risk but took no safety precautions.

The lawsuit claims the teen suffered personal injury, pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.
