A 10-year-old boy was launched off a water slide during opening day of Wave Water Park in Dublin, California. 

The highly anticipated water park opening took a shocking turn when a boy was tossed off the bottom of the three-story slide. 

The child skid across the concrete next to the "emerald plunge" slide. However, the boy gets up and manages to walk away with only a few scrapes on his back and shoulder. 

Park officials closed the slide and one right next to it following the incident. 

The slide could remain closed for a few days while officials evaluate how the boy popped out of it, and plan to prevent accidents from happening again.
