When Nate Schwab, 12, climbed up the now infamous Verrückt water slide at the Schlitterbahn water park with his younger brother, Caleb, 10, in Kansas City on Sunday, he planned to enjoy the thrill ride with his sibling but ended up watching Caleb die instead.
According to Schlitterbahn Kansas City, each raft sliding down the 17-story Verrückt attraction must have two to three riders with a combined weight between 400 and 550 pounds.
Scott Schwab and his wife, Michele — at the Life Mission Church in Olathe, Caleb and Nate reportedly climbed to the top of the Verrückt to experience the thrill of the "insane" ride together.
Eyewitness reports cited by say the brothers were weighed on a scale at the bottom of the Verrückt tower and once again at the top.
They were then told they could not ride the raft together with a third person because the combined weight of all three riders would not meet the 400 pound minimum weight needed for the raft.
In his first 700 games coached for his career, Self's 529 victories rank eighth most all-time in NCAA Division I history.
An investigation into what exactly happened is currently underway.
The Kansas City Star says Caleb's parents have hired Michael Rader and Edward Robertson Jr.
