A Surrey, B.C. woman urges trampoline parks to be regulated after frightening experience involving her 3-year old son.
Better safety measures
The toddler fell through the springs and onto the floor below at a park in Richmond where a father died earlier this year. Ravi Gill-Douglas’s son was at a birthday party at Extreme Air Park when he fell between the springs at the edge of one of the trampolines, hitting the floor below.
She stated that she along with other parents had been watching from a platform when a staff member approached to tell them they had to buy socks. A little girl came running over to them and informed them what happened to the boy. Gill-Douglas and other parents ran over to the trampolines.
She tried to get him engaged and playing again, but when he didn’t seem up to it, he was taken to a hospital to be checked out if first aid care was necessary.
The child was okay but the incident has Gill-Douglas adding her name to a list of people calling for government oversight when it comes to safety at facilities like Extreme Air Park.
