Of course I've played on trampolines before, but have always worried about kids playing on them. Well, anything can really happen right?

A 12-year-old boy in the United Kingdom was lucky to survive what people are calling a 'freak accident' when he was rushed to the hospital after a metal coil from the trampoline, came loose and shot INTO his back, barely missing his spine, thank goodness. 

According to FOX NEWS ,Jamie Quinlan, was jumping on his friend’s trampoline, when the coil ripped through his t-shirt, and lodged itself 2 inches deep into his back. I can bet he won't be playing on those things anymore. He was beyond lucky it just missed his spine, it was centimeters away!

 The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said there are thousands of trampoline related injuries that happen every year. In 2012 alone, there were 94,000 emergency room-treated trampoline injuries.

Children under the age of six are most at risk, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, which noted broken bones, concussions, sprains and strains, and neck injuries are common. Might be time to replace that specific 'toy'.
