LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky Kingdom put their emergency action plans into action Saturday evening when an 8-year-old boy was taken to the lifeguards by his father. 

Kentucky Kingdom officials said it appeared the child may have experienced a seizure in waist-high water while he was in the water park. 

Park lifeguards, EMT crews and LMPD officers were there to assist, and sent the child by ambulance to the hospital as a precautionary measure. 

The child was awake, breathing on his own and responsive, with a strong pulse when he left the park with Louisville Metro.
