Cooler weather has everyone outside - Playground injuries can occur at public schools, private schools, day-cares, city parks, and private homes. Most of these injuries are caused by unsafe behavior by children or by unsafe equipment.
Each year, more than 200,000 children go to U.S. hospital emergency rooms with injuries associated with playground equipment. Most injuries occur when a child falls from the equipment onto the ground but there are other instances where improperly maintained equipment was the issue.
