WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. (WMTV) -- A 16-year-old boy from Florida died after falling from an outdoor water slide at Mt. Olympus Water and Theme Park.

Lake Delton Police say he and his two brothers were sledding on other hills when they hopped a locked fence at the park and sled down an outdoor water slide around 10:30 p.m, Wednesday.

The teen allegedly got stuck in the snow about half-way down the slide and as he tried to free himself, he fell about 35 feet to the ground.

Authorities say a paramedic was driving by the water park at the time and hopped the fence with a defibrillator. The teen died from his injuries.

Lake Delton Police say the family was visiting the Dells to experience snow for the first time.

No charges are being issued.
