Six Flags to fight fine for accident

The Associated Press

        AURORA, Ohio — Six Flags Ohio will appeal a $1,000 fine for an alleged violation at a water playground where a girl nearly drowned.

        Jordan Fish, 11, of Wadsworth, was diving in the 3 1/2-foot-deep water at Hook's Lagoon last summer when her face became stuck in a broken grate. Bystanders and lifeguards pulled Jordan from the water. She suffered no obvious head injury or brain damage but spent several days in the hospital.

        Hook's Lagoon, which opened in 1997, was closed for the rest of the season. Six Flags has requested a hearing, so the Ohio Department of Agriculture will not release any information on its investigation, spokeswoman Deborah Abbott said.
