Trampoline safety 101

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) - They seem like backyard fun and a great source of exercise, but many doctors will tell you trampolines are a bad idea.

A recent review of injuries found 1 million emergency room visits were results of trampoline injuries in a 10 year period.

Colliding with another jumper, falling off and daring stunts are what lead to injuries.

Doctors say if you do have a trampoline, you should only allow one jumper at a time and to not allow gymnastics stunts like flips. An adult should also supervise.

If you're battling it out with your kids the American Academy of Pediatrics advises you should not have a trampoline.
