The Wyandotte County district attorney's office has convened a grand jury to consider possible criminal charges in the fatal accident at Schlitterbahn in August 2016, that killed a 10-year-old boy and injured two women.

The 17-story Verruckt water slide still stands, despite the company's desire to tear it down.

Civil lawsuits between the water park company and the families of the victims have already been settled.

Caleb Schwab, 10, was killed, and two women were seriously injured when their raft went airborne while riding the slide.

Caleb Schwab was the son of Kansas Speaker Pro Tem Scott Schwab.
