Inflatable Pool Slide Recall

    (WENY) -- The Consumer Product Safety Commission s irecalling an inflatable pool slide, after one person died and two others were severely injured.
    The CPSC says Bonzai inflatable in-ground pool slides can deflate during use, allowing the user to hit the ground and get hurt. The slide can also topple over.
    The slides were sold at Walmart and Toys 'R Us between 2005 and 2009, for about $250.
    Two women broke their necks using the slide - one of whom died after hitting her head on the concrete edge of a pool. And a 24 year old man is now a quadriplegic.

The recalled slides have the barcode number 2675315734 and model number 15734. Both the barcode and model number appear on the original packaging but are not on the actual slide.
