Boy, 9, breaks leg at trampoline park forcing family to cancel holiday

A nine-year-old boy was rushed to hospital with his bone sticking out after he broke his leg in two places at a trampoline park.

Harri Hughes, from Conwy, Wales, had to endure a three hour operation following the incident at Flip-Out trampoline park in Chester.

His family were forced to miss their dream holiday to Florida as he had to stay in Alder Hey Children's Hospital for a week while he recovered.

Flip-Out have now launched an investigation into the incident.

Keen sports star Harri was enjoying himself at his friend's friend's birthday party on July 28 when he suffered the horror fall, reports North Wales Live.

Paramedics called to the scene decided the break was so bad that he should be rushed to Alder Hey and not the Countess of Chester Hospital where they would usually take such cases.

Harri is now on a phased return to school and medics don't know when he will be able to play sports again.

He was a star player at Llandudno Rugby Club last season-scoring 100 tries.

His father Stephen has contacted Flip-Out to ask for CCTV footage of the accident-so far the attraction has so far refused, citing data-protection issues.

"It was a horrible situation as we weren't even with Harri when it happened, we got a call telling us about it from the very shocked mum whose child's party it was," said Harri's mother Catherine.
