3 injured when movie screen falls into NY park's wave pool

DARIEN, N.Y. (AP) - Three people escaped with minor injuries suffered when a large movie screen fell into a wave pool at a western New York amusement park.

Officials at Darien Lake in the Genesee County town of Darien, 25 miles east of Buffalo, say the outdoor screen toppled into the deep end of the amusement park's wave pool on Thursday.

Three swimmers suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene by emergency medical personnel. The screen was removed from the pool, which reopened within an hour after the accident.

Officials say contractors had set up the screen earlier Thursday for the park's "Dive-In Movie Night" event Friday, featuring "Finding Nemo." The screen has been reinstalled and the movie will be shown Friday night.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
