WEST ALLIS, Wis. (WSAW) -- An investigation is underway after a child suffered second-degree burns after a slide exploded at a West Allis playground.

West Allis Mayor Dan Devine tells WTMJ-TV the hole formed near the bottom of the slide when the boy was going down.

"It was like the slide had just almost been inflated. It just opened up, bubbled," said he said.

Police don't believe there was anything suspicious about what happened so this isn't a criminal investigation.
