Trampoline Park Safety

This undated photo of an X ray, released by Utah Valley Regional Medical Center, shows all the hardware, plates and screws that were required to fix a fracture ankle caused in a jump gym. “You’ll see a lot of these very severe, open wounds that you don’t see unless you’re in a high-velocity type of injury,” Dr. Craig Cook, trauma director at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center said. “This is like a war type of injury or a motor vehicle crash.” Trauma staff at the hospital say they saw 52 injuries requiring multiple doctor visits from area jump gyms from May 2011 to November 2012, according to their emergency room records. Most of the patients are young men around 19 years old, they say, and have had injuries such as dislocated feet, brain hemorrhaging and paralysis. (AP Photo/Utah Valley Regional Medical Center)
