Who Is Responsible for 2nd Degree Burns on Kids' Feet?

Who Is Responsible for 2nd Degree Burns on Kids' Feet?

Playgrounds are normally a place for parents and their tots to let loose, but New York City parks have given youngsters something to cry about. Children running barefoot have gotten second degree burns on the bottom of their feet from the black rubber matting that lines the ground of their local playgrounds providing cushion for tots. The flooring can heat up to 166 degrees and as a result children who have taken off their shoes have had the soles of their feet singed. Do you think the park department should replace the padding with a safer material, or is it the parent's responsibility to make sure their kids' feet are covered?
