Mom's frightening photo of daughter's injury highlights hidden playground danger

'Don't ever go down a slide with a baby on your lap. The girl's foot is caught in a corner of the slide, contorted and angled back unnaturally. "She's still smiling... because it was happening at this exact moment", Heather Clare wrote in a Facebook warning to all parents. Heather said she posted this every year, but this is the first time she's shared it publicly.
In September 2015, Heather Clare and her twins, Meadow and Matthew, were at the Heckscher Park in Huntington, New York for a day of enjoyment and fun. "I thought everyone took their kids down the slide", she says.
Moving forward, Heather says that Meadow will be required to have annual visits with the orthopedic doctor to monitor her leg growth. In September 2015, the mom took her twin babies, Matthew and Meadow, to a park in NY hoping for some family fun.
But when it was Meadow's turn, the child's leg came loose.
"[Meadow] is aware of what happened to her though and will not go down the slide with anyone else", she said. She attempted to slow down, but it was too late.
Parents and carers should therefore avoid going down a slide with young children on their lap, said Jennissen, and those who choose to do so should practice extreme caution to prevent their feet from catching on the equipment.
As they continued sliding, Meadow fractured her tibia and fibula thanks to her foot getting unknowingly caught. "And in most cases, I have seen, the parents had no idea that doing so could possibly give their child such a significant injury".
Some experts advise to tuck the child's legs between yours when going down a slide, but Clare believes there's no safe way for a child to ride in his or her parent's lap.
"Instead, the parent wants to stand next to the slide, hold the child on there about halfway up, and let the child go down while you're guarding them", said Torres.
But the study found compelling evidence against that notion. She went down an nearly 10-foot-long slide with Matthew on her lap first. "If the child is unable to use the slide independently, another activity would be more appropriate", the study says.
After her injury, Meadow spent about a month in a cast.
This is the first year Clare has made the post public, as she was always "afraid of the negative criticisms".
Clare said she is shocked by the reaction to the photo - most of it has been positive. She hopes that the attention will lead to more clear warnings at playgrounds across the country. One mom has an important reminder for us before we hit the playground, though: riding down slides with kids is super risky.
After her daughter suffered a serious injury in 2015, mother-of-three Heather Clare wrote an important PSA on Facebook, warning parents that even though they think they are taking precautions by going down slides with their kids on their laps, they are actually putting their children's bodies in serious danger.
