Amusement park taps into city fire hydrants
Officials at Coney Island's Luna Park could have been hung out to dry because of an incident involving the popular Wild River water ride.
Brooklyn Daily reporter Will Bredderman snapped a photo of a hose attached to a city fire hydrant filling up the ride. Even though Luna Park sits on city land, a permit is needed to use a public hydrant.
Luna Park spokeswoman, Nicole Purmal said maintenance crews saw that the ride's water levels were down so they tapped into the closest hydrant to keep it open.
