LAS VEGAS, NV - At least 50 people placed plastic bags over their shoes and trampled through sewage water containing urine at the Linq's Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas.

Legendary singer Steve Winwood was performing Saturday, June 14th when the leak was noticed.

The Linq released the following statement:

"A water leak last night under The Linq hasn’t dampened plans today to celebrate Father’s Day at the High Roller, the world’s largest observation wheel. The offer gives dad a free ride today with purchase of another ticket and includes a complimentary beverage at the Sky Lounge.

At approximately 11:15 p.m. last night (Saturday), a water main broke under the center of The Linq’s streetscape, resulting in early closure of some nearby tenants. Repairs and clean-up began shortly afterward. As a precaution, the High Roller closed earlier than was scheduled, but reopened today (Sunday) at 11:30AM. Many of The Linq’s tenants will be open today."

The leak was under control after about three hours.
