A 3-year-old boy lost a finger in a shopping mall play center accident in Chiba, police said Saturday.
The incident occurred on Friday afternoon at around 1:30 p.m. in a shopping center at Naganumaharacho in Inage Ward, TBS reported. The boy was playing on a trampoline in a children's play area.
Witnesses say the boy was trying to get off the trampoline when he lost his balance. The middle finger of his left hand became caught in a hole in the trampoline and was torn off, TBS reported.
A spokesperson for the shopping center said the play area in which the accident took place has been temporarily closed and other children's amusement facilities are currently being checked for signs of damage.© Japan Today
