A young girl stopped breathing while inside a water toy attraction at the Pump ‘n’ Jump store at Independence Mall in Kingston. The store allowed children to climb into and walk or float in an inflatable 6-foot ball. It is a popular toy, and the Cape Cod Mall in Hyannis has a similar ride.
The girl’s condition is unknown, but she was taken to a hospital. The ride has been suspended, and the safety of the water walking balls in under investigation.
