Always Anchor Your Child's Play Set

Always anchor your child's play set in deep concrete or you might have this problem!

Our neighbor had this beautiful play set & pool for their children. All of the kids in the neighborhood loved to go to their house. One evening after dinner we had a West Virginia wind and this is the result.

My neighbor too had a playset (bought on sale) and never got around to anchor it (or to tighten some bolts).Yet all the kids in the neighborhood played there and then tradgedy struck; while a bunch of kids were on it, the combined weight collapsed it and sent 2 kids to the hospital with some broken bones and concussions. Their homeowners' insurance is now extremely high.
