In 2018, two-year-old girl lost her little toe while sliding down a sliding board into a splash pad at Buzzards Bay Park in Bourne, MA. At the time she went down the slide, there was a vertical crack about a foot long in the slide. The toe caught in the crack and was sliced off. [A splash pad is a recreation area, often in a public park, for water play that has little or no standing water.]

On March 1, 2011, the Wisconsin Court of Appeals upheld a lower court decision granting summary judgment to a snowmobile club and county government that jointly maintained a northern Wisconsin snowmobile trail system.
The case, Milton v. Washburn County, arose out of a snowmobile accident that occurred when the plaintiff and his passenger unexpectedly encountered a locked gate on an “access trail” leading to and from the main trail system.
