UPDATED: Officials respond to chlorine release at Michigan's Adventure story image

MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Emergency responders were on the scene Friday afternoon of a situation at Michigan's Adventure theme park in Muskegon.

The park released a statement saying that they detected high chlorine levels in a wave pool just after 4:00 p.m.

Newschannel 3 has been able to confirm with sources that there are 19 people currently at Muskegon hospitals, with 7 more expected.

All are in fair condition.

Officials indicate there are no serious injuries, and they involve respiratory problems due to chlorine exposure.

A viewer also forwarded us the above image, which purports to show people being hosed off in a parking lot as a result of the situation.

The rest of the park remains open.

We have a crew on their way to the scene and will update you as any information comes available.
