4 injured after decorative helicopter falls into a pool at New Jersey water park

Four people were injured at a water park in New Jersey’s American Dream mall on Sunday after a decorative helicopter structure fell from the ceiling and landed in a pool below, officials said.

Troopers responded to the DreamWorks Water Park in East Rutherford just after 3 p.m. for reports of visitors “injured by a decorative prop that had fallen from the ceiling,” the New Jersey State Police said in a statement.

The decorative helicopter had been suspended from the ceiling and was believed to have somehow detached before falling into the pool, state police said.

At least four people suffered non-life-threatening injuries, they said. One person was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment, state police added, while the other three were treated at the scene for minor injuries.
