What Injuries Were Reported from the Chemical Leak at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Splashtown in Houston?
Over 100 people were treated in nearby hospitals Saturday afternoon — 28 of whom were transported directly to the emergency room by first responders — after a chemical leak at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Splashtown.
Many of the park’s visitors were still in bathing suits when they arrived at the emergency rooms, suffering from varying injuries that included:
