Some summer time activities are more dangerous than others for children.
Doctors say one of the most dangerous activities for children is trampolines.
They were invented in the 1930’s and now they are cheap enough to be available to most people with enough space to place one in the back yard.
They are a good way to get kids outside and away from the video games but according to one study from the IU School of Medicine trampolines were the cause of 1 million ER visits between 2002 and 2011.
Injuries range from sprains and strains to neck and head injuries that can result in paralysis.
Something else to keep in mind before you buy a trampoline, check your homeowner insurance policy.
May either prohibit them or have exclusions for trampoline injuries.
