BRIDGEPORT - There is a mystery surrounding the old amusement park at Pleasure Beach in Bridgeport.

About a week ago, a local pilot noticed that the old park structures were torn down. However, no one knows who dismantled the rides. Bridgeport's deputy fire chief says the structures were unsafe, but his department didn't take them down. He adds that the rest of the structures need to be dismantled before someone gets hurt.

Meanwhile, the founder and director of Long Island Sound America, a group hoping Pleasure Beach will be revitalized, says he's not happy and wants answers.
