ARTICLE OF INTEREST

 

 

  • READERS EMAIL – To all Parents I am circulating this email to alert parents to the very real but hidden dangers of the combination of water and power that go with inflatable waterslides. My 13 year old daughter Caity was electrocuted on Sunday the 20th at a party. A water slide had been hired for the party and was installed by the company it was hired from. She was standing near the compressor/motor looking at some plants when suddenly her hand was stuck to the handle on the motor, she was thrown to the ground with the full power supply going through her body. The motor had no safety switch and only when the power supply was switched off and she was able to get to her feet, was her hand freed from the motor. Luckily no other child tried to grab her and pull her away or they too would have been electrocuted and possibly killed. Caity has been in considerable pain for the past 3 days from burns where the power exited her body, the grass burns down her back from being thrown on the ground with such force and the whiplash pains in her neck and shoulders. This is nothing however against the fact that she could be dead. I went to speak to the owner of the water slide, Kirk of Extreme Sliding based at 167 Enterprise Road. He claimed to know nothing about the accident and his only concern was that the parents holding the party had signed an indemnity form and therefore any accidents were their responsibility and nothing to do with him. The fact was his manager had set the slide up, placed the compressor on the ground where water was very likely to gather and left no instructions about safety switches should you need to cut the power quickly or any other precautions needed to be taken. The motor must have been faulty for the full power supply to go through the water it was standing in and electrocute Caity. He did finally apologize but there was no real concern about the fact he had hired out faulty equipment that was potentially lethal. There is no National Health and Safety body who checks that the people supplying these blow-up entertainment structures have abided by a set of rules and instructions to ensure that the equipment they supply is safe, motors are regularly serviced, in good working condition with no power leakages. The Health and Safety body is you, the parent. These water slides are great fun for the kids and plenty of people hire them for parties. The trouble is no one is really aware of the dangers until an accident happens. We are extremely lucky that Caity was not killed, the next child might not be so lucky. Please can you forward this to everyone you know who has kids. Caro Colahan.
