The Orlando Police department says it was called to Wet 'n' Wild water park at 10:07 a.m. today to investigate an "industrial accident." According to police, an employee became trapped underwater while cleaning one of the pools in the park.

Another worker pulled him from the water and called for help. The Orlando Fire Department arrived on the scene, provided medical help and transported him to Dr. Phillips hospital, where he is now listed in critical but stable condition.

Police say that the investigation of the incident will now be turned over to OSHA.
