Banzai in-ground pool water slides sold nationwide in Wal-Mart and Toys R Us stores are being recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) after it received reports of one death and two serious injuries related to the product.
Two people were severely hurt when the slide suddenly deflated in mid-use. One woman fractured her neck, and a man became a quadriplegic. A young mother died after hitting her neck on the concrete edge of her pool when the slide deflated.
Consumers who have purchased the product should stop using it immediately. The slides can be returned to any Wal-Mart or Toys R Us location for a full refund.
