STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with props to Kevin Dumont. He owned the Liquid Planet water park in New Hampshire, which had financial trouble. He didn't want to let go. Hoping to attract new investors, he climbed a waterslide and chained himself to the top because what better attracts investors than an owner chained to a slide? Dumont gave up after his doctor told him 17 days outdoors was giving him pneumonia. But he has at least been able to sell the park to a new owner. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
