Sad! Three children just disappeared. This safety hazard exists in almost every community…

On the eve of Children\’s Day, three children disappeared. Accidents are always so unexpected. On May 26, in a community in Fuqing, Fujian, three children died due to suspected electric shock while playing in a landscape pool. The three children are the 8-year-old daughter of the owner of the community and his two nephews. The culprit of this tragedy is likely to be the landscape fountain in the community. Whenever I see news like this, my mother’s heart always aches. Think about yourself, every summer I take my children to the square to see the fountain, and the children sometimes reach out to stir up the water in the fountain. But I never thought that this action might pose a safety hazard. In fact, news about children dying due to landscape fountains has frequently appeared in the newspapers. In August 2017, a little girl in Siping, Jilin, was walking her dog in a landscape fountain. Unfortunately, she was electrocuted and fell to the ground. The child\’s mother and grandmother came to the rescue and were both shocked. The little girl died that night. In the same year, two 8-year-old boys were catching fish in a fountain in a community in Jinan, Shandong. One of the children was suspected of being electrocuted and suddenly fell into the water. He eventually died after rescue efforts failed. …There is such an experiment: a 10-pound watermelon is placed at the mouth of a spring. The moment the fountain spurts out, the watermelon is rushed up to 3 meters in the air. The water pressure of low-pressure fountain is 1-2 kg, and the spray height is 3-4 meters; the water pressure of high-pressure fountain is 10-15 kg, and the spray height can reach 50-60 meters. The seemingly beautiful fountain is really too lethal. As parents, we need to remind our children that the fountain can only be viewed from a distance and not to play in the pool to prevent leakage or injury from the impact of the water flow. Parents really can’t be careless when it comes to children’s outdoor activities. Are there any other \”dangerous sources\” in life that parents should be more vigilant about? Floor lamps and viewing lights. Floor lamps and viewing lights that usually look beautiful also have hidden safety hazards. If children touch them, they can easily cause danger. In 2017, a 1-year-old girl in Xuzhou, Jiangsu Province fell while playing in a square and pressed her hand on a floor lamp, which was so hot that it was covered in blisters. In 2015, in Ruian, Zhejiang, Ms. Sun took her 2-year-old son to play in the park. The child touched a floor lamp in the park with his hand. Unexpectedly, four or five large blisters immediately appeared on his palm. Some parents of children have done experiments. They spread the eggs on the floor lamp and they were cooked in 1 minute. Firefighters once conducted a test. After the landscape lights were operated for 5 minutes, the surface temperature could reach more than 70 degrees, and the internal temperature could reach more than 100 degrees; the temperature of the floor lights could reach 196.7 degrees. In addition to the possibility of scalding children, floor lamps and viewing lamps also carry the risk of electric leakage. Therefore, while parents take good care of their children, they must also warn them not to touch floor lamps and landscape lights to avoid being burned. Children\’s Trampoline I have seen this news: Chenchen, a 10-year-old boy from Wuhan, Hubei Province, was playing on the trampoline at a playground near his home. The moment he loosened his belt, he suddenly fell to the ground paralyzed. After the doctor\’s diagnosis, it was learned that Chenchen\’s 10th and 11th thoracic cords had edema, nerve damage, and fiber rupture. The thoracic cord has been severely damaged and there is no feeling in the legs. Recovery will be a very long process. Doctors said that children\’s bungee beds pose great safety risks, especially when they bounce upwards at the lowest point and the child is overweight.The impact force is large and can easily lead to \”whiplash injury\”. In addition to children\’s trampolines, inflatable trampolines are also harmful to children. A 4-year-old girl in Chengdu suddenly lay motionless on the ground after playing on an inflatable trampoline for 4 hours. After being sent to the hospital, it was discovered that the child had a spiral fracture of the femoral shaft of her left leg. A boy under 3 years old in Nanjing accidentally fell and fractured his elbow while playing on an inflatable trampoline. Previously, a mother from the United States, Kate Allen, said on Facebook: \”I want more parents to be aware of the dangers of children playing on trampolines. Because, my son Colton was playing on a trampoline a few days ago. When he was young, he fell and broke his femur, the strongest bone in the body. We also learned from Colton’s pediatric surgeon about the dangers of children playing on trampolines…\” American Academy of Pediatrics (America) The Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children under 6 years old not play on trampolines. Because their bones are still fragile and cannot withstand the stress of repeated jumping, their bodies are not yet developed enough to control their bounce. According to statistics from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there were 98,000 trampoline-related injuries in the United States in 2009, of which children under 6 years old accounted for 22%-37% of the total number of injuries. Although older children can play appropriately, parents must pay attention to protective measures and should not play for too long at one time. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that 1. Pediatricians must discourage children from playing such dangerous games; 2. Parents must ensure that no one else is involved when children play on trampolines; 3. Trampolines must be set up on the ground and surrounded by Pads and safety nets are used for protection to prevent children from falling and being injured; 4. It is not recommended for children to use difficult movements such as somersaults and somersaults. Community Fitness Facilities Nowadays, every community is basically equipped with public fitness equipment. Usually adults like to stretch their muscles and sometimes let children participate. However, these fitness equipment are basically configured according to adult standards, and few are suitable for children. In February this year, an 8-year-old girl in a community in Wuhan was playing with fitness equipment with her friends. She had an accident while playing with a \”Tai Chi push and kneading device\”. She died due to heart and lung crush injuries and respiratory and circulatory failure. Previously, a 2-year-old boy in Weinan accidentally got his right leg stuck between two steel pipes of fitness equipment and finally escaped with the assistance of firefighters. A 5-year-old boy in Guangzhou was stuck in the head by a butterfly-shaped steel pipe of fitness equipment and could not be pulled out. Firefighters used toothless saws to cut through the steel pipe and rescued the boy. In fact, most of the fitness equipment in the community is not suitable for children. There are often words on fitness equipment such as \”Children under 1.4 meters tall are not suitable for use\” or \”Children need to be accompanied by parents to use\”, but this is often ignored by most parents. We must always tell our children not to play on fitness equipment alone without the company of an adult. Swimming pools According to statistics from the Global Child Safety Organization, more than 17,000 children aged 0-17 drown in China every year. The summer months from June to August are the peak period for drowning, and the mortality rate among boys is higher than that among girls.2.4 times. Many parents may think that most of these drowning incidents occur outdoors. Swimming pools have professional rescue personnel who can prevent such incidents from happening to a large extent. In fact, this is a cognitive error. Don\’t think that children will yell and panic after drowning. In fact, there is an \”upright\” form of drowning that is easily overlooked. Children often choke on water first and then show a drowning reaction. After a child chokes on water, his breathing becomes rapid, he cannot make a sound, and his brain quickly loses consciousness. At this time, the phenomenon of \”upright drowning\” occurs. Signs of upright drowning 1. The head is above the water and the mouth is submerged under the water; 2. The head is tilted back and the mouth is open; 3. The eyes are dull and unable to focus; 4. The eyes are closed tightly; 5. The hair is covered Holding the forehead or eyes; 6. Unable to move the legs; 7. Shortness of breath or spasms; 8. Trying to swim in a certain direction but staying still; 9. Trying to turn the body; 10. Hands making movements like climbing a ladder. . In the United States, 10% of drowning cases occur under the witness of adults, and these adults do not know what is happening at the time. Therefore, please be sure to protect your children. Indoor swimming pools, bathtubs at home, and bathtubs may be drowning scenes. When children are swimming, remember not to let them out of our sight, interact with them frequently, and ask them: \”Are you okay? Are you okay?\” In addition, we must prevent \”secondary drowning\”. In Texas, USA, a 4-year-old boy named Frankie Delgado died suddenly after swimming for a week. The doctor said the child drowned and there was water in his lungs and near his heart. It turned out that a big wave hit the child on the face while he was swimming a week ago, causing the child to plunge into the water. But there was nothing abnormal about the child at the time. After returning home, the child began to have symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea… In fact, what happened to Frankie was a second drowning. If your child comes back from swimming and develops symptoms such as abnormal behavior, fatigue, drowsiness, coughing, body pain, diarrhea, fever, shortness of breath, and pale face, you must carefully ask the child whether he or she has choked on water, and take the child to the hospital for a physical examination. Check to prevent fluid accumulation in the lungs. The world of adults is not easy, and the world of children cannot tolerate childish play. There are unpredictable potential dangers in the world of children. As parents, what you need is 100% concentration, patience, and a sense of responsibility. In the world of children, the slightest carelessness on the part of adults may cause fatal harm to children. In the early days of life, we are an outlet for children to see the world. It is the unshirkable responsibility of parents to help children identify dangers and keep them away from dangers. No parent is omnipotent, but I am willing to do my best to protect you, protect you, give you love, and give you the strength and courage to walk in the world.
