Little Boy Got These Strange Sores After Going In A Bouncy Castle. What The Doctors Tell Mom? Scary!
When a child sees a bouncy house their eyes light up and their little legs seem to instinctively run towards it. The giant inflatable castles are a symbol of endless fun and are as irresistible to kids as a triple-scoop ice cream cone is. They love to play and bounce around for hours on end in the colorful things. Parents love them too because it keeps their children busy in one place and tires them out. It also gives many a false sense of security. Adults assume kids have less of a chance of getting hurt in these cushioned enclosures, but that’s not the case. Parents need to be aware, and on the lookout, for possible dangers that are lurking in the walls of these bouncy castles.
One woman, Brenda Sanderson, found this out the hard way. She took her two sons to a graduation party and while she mingled with friends and family they played in a bouncy house that had been rented for the occasion. They had a blast jumping around, going down the slide, wrestling, and doing all the rough and tumble stuff that boys love to do. Fast forward 2 days, which is when Brenda noticed odd looking marks on her 10 year old son’s arm. She asked him what it was and he said he thought it was from the bouncy castle and assumed the plastic had somehow burned his skin. When Brenda noticed the sores had spread to his tummy she immediately took him to the hospital.
