  1. I had no idea until it happened to me. I broke my little girls leg day before yesterday. I went down the slide with her, because the last slide knocked the breath out of her when she flew off and hit the ground. I never knew that I would break her leg. She got a spiral fracture of the tibia

  2. Happened to my son when he was nine months old. It’s almost always on the twisty slides, according to both the ER doc and ortho specialist we saw, which is what we went down. He ended up with a spiral fracture of the tibia, and after 2 1/2 weeks in a cast we were good to go, but those first few nights were truly the worst nights of my entire parenting experience. This is a very common occurrence… Thanks for educating parents on it!
