Robert Trostle says being splashed on the Raging Rapids water ride at Kennywood Park in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania gave him an eye-eating parasite that caused him horribly painful symptoms. Even worse: surgery to his eye, which involved scraping the eye with a surgical scalpel, couldn’t completely remove the microsporidia keratitis parasite.
Robert and his wife Krystsina have filed a $35,000 lawsuit against the park: claiming the dirty water supply towards the end of the ride was to blame.
Robert is still suffering from redness, pain, blurry vision, inflammation and itchiness in the affected eye.
