It soon became clear that Maddie needed medical assistance. A member of the trampoline park’s staff brought an ice pack and did what they could to help the four-year-old. Then they waited for paramedics to whisk her away to the hospital.
Maddie received an operation on a broken leg and a fractured ankle. The pain was so intense that doctors were forced to give her ketamine and morphine to treat her.
The injury meant that Maddie would have to attend her first day at kindergarten in a wheelchair. While not blaming the park for the accident, Maddie’s parents were nevertheless less than impressed with the treatment offered to their daughter.
