Evos Slalom Glider Recalled

The Evos Slalom Glider playground equipment has been recalled after serious injuries were sustained by various children.  Recently, a couple filed a lawsuit against Landscape Structures, the playground equipment manufacturer, as a result of their daughter breaking her arm on the slalom glider slide.  The plaintiffs claim that the six-foot-high slide lacked a platform on the top and does not have sides or handles, making children fall.

The plaintiffs are seeking $7,500, which is the cost of medical treatment for their daughter’s injuries.  A total of 16 injuries from the slide have been reported.  Consequently, the manufacturing recently issued a recall of the slide and is no longer selling it.
