Design defect prompts recall of inflatable slide

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall on nearly 21,000 Banzai in-ground pool water slides after receiving two reports of serious neck injuries and one reported death.

A design defect causes the slide to partially deflate when in use, causing the user to fall to the ground below. One woman suffered a fractured neck and a man became a quadriplegic as a result of this defect. Additionally, a young mother died after hitting her neck on the concrete edge of the swimming pool when the slide deflated while in use.
