Amy Smith took her daughter to play at the park on a day when there didn’t seem to be anyone else around. As the mom found a comfortable spot to watch, the toddler ran to the slide and climbed in where she stayed for longer than normal, before coming out in tears. When Smith looked inside, she was absolutely sick at what she found.
The tunnel slide is typically Smith’s daughter’s favorite part of the playground, but now she’s too scared to go back after a traumatizing Sunday afternoon in the tube. When little Demi-Mai came out and went running to her mom in tears, Smith was caught off guard by what was on her child’s behind and dripping down her legs. Never did she expect what she was about to find next. According to the Mirror, Smith and Demi-Mai were at Kitson Park in Torquay, England over the weekend when the sobbing girl came to her mom with blood covering the back of her legs and on her diaper. They’ve been to this park before and never has such a thing happened, but this time was different after what an awful person intentionally did.
Smith said she found broken glass on a portion of the slide that appeared to have been intentionally put there to harm children. Badly cut with some shards still embedded in Demi-Mai’s little legs, the horrified mother rushed her to the hospital where she had to receive special care.
The toddler is now recovering at home, but Smith hopes to get the message out to other parents to inspect play equipment before setting kids free to play on it. It’s sad that this is what the world has come to, where innocent play time in a space meant for kids to enjoy being kids has to be combed over before each use just to make sure no degenerate has done any harm.
This little girl’s legs may heal, but her fear of something that should be fun will outlast her injury. Whoever did this was probably lurking in the trees waiting and watching for the very moment their glass ripped apart a child’s bottom. The culprit needs to be found and forced to ride down a broken glass infested slide.
