WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Officials at a Waterloo amusement park say six people received minor injuries when two pieces of equipment on an attraction collided.

Lost Island Water Park says the incident occurred Monday afternoon on the Wailua Kapua water coaster slide.

Park manager Eric Bertch says a boat carrying three people got stuck inside a hidden section of the ride. Staff members then mistakenly allowed another boat to proceed, which caused the vessels to collide.

One person required stitches. The others received bumps and bruises.

Bertch says staff will review safety procedures, but called it an isolated incident.
