Chemical leak at Six Flags water park in Texas

A chemical leak at a Houston-area water park left dozens suffering from minor skin irritation and respiratory issues, authorities said.

Twenty-nine people were taken to local hospitals following the incident Saturday at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Splashtown in Spring, the Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office tweeted. Thirty-nine others declined to be taken to a hospital after undergoing decontamination procedures.

KPRC-TV reports that some of those who became sick were children, including a 3-year-old who was hospitalized in stable condition.

The chemicals involved included hypochlorite solution and 35% sulfuric acid, officials said.
