Experts warn, ‘don’t drink and bounce’

Doctors have issued a warning over drunk adults bouncing on trampolines with children.


Experts at a Scottish A&E department analysed 50 child trampoline injuries treated in a six-week period. They found many were hurt whilst being supervised by or bouncing with adults who had been drinking.


80% of these injuries were caused by more than one person bouncing on the trampoline at once, and almost half happened when there was a lack of adult supervision.


Andrew Bogacz from the department of emergency medicine at Ninewells Hospital, Dundee said: “Adults, please note that lager, wine, and trampolines do not mix.”
