In the past two years, 19 Utah children were hospitalized overnight or longer at Primary Children's Medical Center with injuries sustained on playgrounds. Nine of the children were under 5 years old, eight were school-age and two were teens. Of those, four received skull and spine fractures, and 15 broke other bones. Six also had open wounds.
The South Salt Lake project by Injury Free Coalition for kids hopes to drastically reduce the rate of these life-changing events.
