CANDIA, New Hampshire (AP)–

The owner of a New Hampshire waterpark facing foreclosure has chained himself to the top of a slide tower and is hoping for a financial miracle.

Kevin Dumont says on his Facebook page he’s not looking for a handout, just someone to help him prevent a Dec. 2 auction of Liquid Planet in Candia. He promises to stay atop the tower 24/7 and says it’s a “last ditch” effort to save the small business he created.

Two 40-foot slides at the park were shuttered in August when regulators found high levels of bacteria and said Dumont opened the attractions without a required review.

In another Facebook post he thanks friends for pizza, beer and company and asks if anyone knows how to contact presidential candidates who’ve been blanketing the state.
