OLD FORGE, N.Y. – A 23-year-old woman from Mattydale died while at Enchanted Forest Water Safari on Sunday after going into cardiac arrest from what is believed to be a severe asthma attack, according to Town of Webb police.

Around 1:45 p.m., police say Kailey J. Morrell was having trouble breathing while walking up an incline to the top of one of the water slides. She and a friend went down the slide and then left the pool area. Moments later, Morrell was having a hard time breathing again and used her inhaler, but ultimately collapsed.
