The accident happened on the council play area off Aldermoor Road in Southampton.  Adam was sliding along the zip wire when the metal cable broke and whipped him around the head.  Adam was taken to hospital where staff glued the wound on the top of his head.

Adam's mother has criticised the council for failing to maintain the zip slide.  The council, at this time, are denying a failure to maintain.  They have advised that the break in the zip line was caused by an act of vandalism and that the line was checked the day before the accident and found to be in working order.  Adam's mother is disputing this and has taken photographs of the zip line which, she claims, shows the line to be rusted.  She is considering taking legal action.

I wish Adam a speedy recovery and hope his unfortunate accident does not prevent him from enjoying playground activities in the future.
