Trampoline Parks Linked To Hundreds Of South Florida Injuries

About two years ago, now-13-year-old Alexandra Karob-Volpina was bouncing off at the Off the Wall trampoline park in Coconut Creek when she got injured, NBC6 reported. 

“Someone ran by and just jumped on my ankle as I was landing,” she said, according to the local news station. 

She broke her ankle and was rushed to an urgent care. Today, her scar is still visible. 

Over the past two years, nearly 300 calls were made to 911 about injuries and falls related to trampoline parks, according to department records. In at least 70 incidents, paramedics showed up.

Among the calls, according to NBC6:

  • A 4-year-old boy who sprained his ankle
  • A 6-year-old girl left bleeding after someone jumped on top of her
  • A boy who fell and busted his head at a park in Broward County last month a

According to dispatch records, 911 was called more than 60 times in the last two years to the Off the Wall location where Alexandra got hurt. Hers was one of two calls for help made that day. 

Alexandra and her family filed a lawsuit against Off the Wall. The Broward Clerk’s website shows it’s one of at least 12 lawsuits filed against the company as a result of injuries. 

The suit claims that the park was negligent and failed to have proper supervision, which ultimately resulted in Alexandra’s injury. 

The lawsuit is pending.
