One Florida woman is trying to spread a message to as many parents as possible after her 3-year-old son is recovering from very serious injuries after being hurt on a trampoline. She spoke out on Good Morning America: “No mother, no father, ever wants to see their child the way that we had to see Colton,” she said.
Kaitlin Hill, a nurse and the mother of two, from Tampa, Florida, said that her little boy Colton, broke his femur. Doctors placed him in a cast from the waist down.
“The pain that he went through and the pain that he is continuously going through at this point — it’s been a nightmare,” she added.
She posted the picture with the following caption: “As hard as it is to relive the past 12 days, we feel compelled to make other parents aware of the danger associated with indoor trampoline parks.” Immediately, the picture went viral, getting over 250,000 ‘SHARES’.
According to Hill, “his feet hit the mat, and almost instantly his knees buckled down, and he just let out the worst scream that you could ever have heard from a child.”
“We took him to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with a left femur fracture, the strongest bone in his little body,” she added.
“We learned from our amazing medical team that children of Colton’s age should not have been on a trampoline at all. We were completely shocked to hear this. We had no idea,” Hill said. “My husband and I would have never put our baby boy on a trampoline if we would have known that beforehand.”
Please pray for this little boy, and ‘SHARE’ this important message!
