GALVESTON, TX – After an 11-year-old girl lost part of her thumb in Schlitterbahn’s wave pool this summer, her lawyer is pointing his finger at the water park.

Daniel Horowitz says Serenity Davis’s family was turned down when they asked for her medical bills to be covered.

Now the girl’s family is lawyered up. They want changes at the park and damages.

‘When the wave pulled her back, her thumb got caught in a grate … and ripped her thumb off,’ explains Horowtiz.

Court papers claim Schlitterbahn’s negligence lead to the loss. Schlitterbahn says they can’t share much with litigation is ongoing, but “safety is a top priority.”
