In a shocking and heartbreaking incident on May 13 in Mykolaiv, Ukraine, a four-year-old girl lost her life in an inflatable trampoline mishap at a local amusement park.
The unfortunate series of events began while the little girl was joyfully playing on an inflatable trampoline. Reportedly, she became inadvertently ensnared in the loops of the inflatable structure. Authorities have confirmed that the cause of death was asphyxiation, a conclusion arrived at after the girl was found to have accidentally strangled herself.
In the aftermath of the incident, local law enforcement took the 45-year-old owner of the inflatable trampoline into custody. This move indicates that the amusement park’s safety measures and the possible negligence of those entrusted with ensuring the well-being of its young visitors are under scrutiny.
Details provided by Natalia Kuchynska, a close family friend, paint a picture of neglect at the time of the mishap. She expressed deep disappointment and outrage, recounting how the park’s employees were distracted by their mobile phones rather than vigilantly supervising the playing kids.
She vividly recalls three staff members sitting with their backs turned towards the trampoline, engrossed in their mobile screens and oblivious to the grim incident unfolding. Despite frantic attempts by onlookers to save the child, their efforts were in vain as she was later pronounced dead.
The local police are persistently probing the incident to unravel the details and circumstances leading to this distressing occurrence.
