surfaced in a massive lawsuit filed against cowabunga bay water park in henderson. the park had only a handful of lifeguards on duty last year when a 6- year old boy was pulled underwater and left paralyzed for life. ((paul joncich)) >> as the i-team uncovered, that incident exposed serious enforcement issues within the southern nevada health district, and now, current and former employees have come forward to tell us about other risks to public health, far beyond the walls of a water park. george knapp has the story. leland gardner was a happy healthy 6 year old when he visited cowabunga bay last may. somehow he was pulled under the churning waters of the park's giant wave pool, by the time he was pulled out minutes later, the damage was done. samuel mirkovich attorney for gardner family: leland suffered a catastrophic brain injury. he has minimal motor skills. he can't talk. he can't eat. ((george knapp)) attorneys for the gardner family are suing cowagunga bay
public safety. according to the conditions that allowed the park to open, the sprawling wave pool needed to have 17 lifeguards on duty. in a sworn deposition, general manager shayne huish testified that the park never assigned that many lifeguards to the wave pool. on the day leland was hurt, and only three were working. once the park had opened, the health district never inspected it or checked the lifeguards. two weeks after leland's injury, the with fewer than half the required number of lifeguards at the wave pool. so what punishment did the district hand out? jackie reszetar: we charged them 118 dollars. ((george knapp)) chief environmental health officer jackie reszetar thinks 118 dollars was an appropriate fee for the violation that left leland gardner in thsi state. she personally led the charge to give cowabunga a variance. reszetar lobbied the health board to cut the lifeguard requirement by two thirds.
was made of the park's repeated violations of the law.. george knapp: how do you have a hearing about cowabunga bay's lifeguards without mentioning what happened to leland gardner? health district whistleblower: i don't know. i dont know how they could ever show that because, to get a variance, you have to show financial burden and how you'll protect the public...so if you have a facility that has a drowning because of non compliance issues....already that would not allow you to have a variance. this experienced health district whistleblower is one of a half dozen longtime employees who've contacted the i-team. inspectors told us the wave pool should have been ordered closed, especially after a second failed inspection but the power to take that action was stripped from inspectors when jackie rezsetar was hired.
industry-friendly approach, that is, businesses which are found in violation of health laws get the benefit of the doubt. it applies not only to water parks but in casesd of food safety violations.....sani tation risks...across the board. when inspectors find a violation, businesses know how to get around the law. whistleblower: 3333 there are a number of people in the industry, people that know if they go direxctly to jackie reszetar, they can get a lot approved or look the other way. ((george knapp)) inspectors say they work in fear, and it ow comments submitted during an employee survey last year. the results are overwhelmingly negative..upper management is dysfunctional..t he employees demoralized.....a lack of honesty transparency and competency....wh ich put public health at serious risk. when inspectors find health violations, they often don't report them at all... whistleblower: because they are afraid that she will just waive whatever law there might be, on a whim.
