The child — whose name and age has not been disclosed — was in distress at the Coconut Cove pool when a staff member had to pull her out on July 5, according to park spokesman Dwayne McMulkin.
After medical personnel performed CPR, the girl was transported to Children’s Mercy Hospital with critical injuries according to the outlet.
But just a week after she was being treated in the hospital, Cedar Fair Entertainment Co announced that she succumbed to her injuries.
The cause of the girl’s injuries is unknown at this time.
“We are deeply saddened to learn of her passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time,” McMulkin said.
Coconut Cove opened in 1992 and is a 4.5-foot deep pool that contains short body slides and holds 500,000 gallons of water, according to the park’s site.
Life jackets are required for children who stand less than 52” tall in bare feet. Children less than 42” tall are required to wear a life jacket and be accompanied by supervision.
Oceans of Fun water park says they will remain closed until further notice.
