Toddler struck by a car, unable to be rescued in time from a maze-like fence.
A then twenty month old infant ran away from his mother at a schoolyard. When he ran through a complicated “maze-like” fencing system, his mother could not reach him before he was hit by a car in a busy street, sustaining serious injuries. Due to the ill-designed fence, the mother could not navigate the labyrinth to grab her child in time. We brought in human factors experts on the case, who explained that had there been no fence or had it been more open, the child’s mother could have moved quickly to intercept him and prevent the accident.
