HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – A child was rushed to a hospital Friday afternoon after he had a seizure at TY Park's Castaway Island water park in Hollywood, park security guards said.

Sky 10 was above the scene off Interstate 95 and Sheridan Street about 4:45 p.m. as an ambulance drove the victim to Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital.

Authorities have not released the age or identity of the victim, but paramedics were seen entering the hospital with a young child on a stretcher.

Security guards at the park told Local 10 News that the child had a seizure while in the water, and lifeguards jumped in and pulled the child out.

Just this past April another incident was reported at the same location.

In that case, a 6-year-old boy was taken to a hospital in critical condition after he was found facedown in three feet of water.

That boy did survive.
