OMG that would NEVER happen here ! The health and safety exec would have appoplexy ! And people actually pay to go to this ?
How does it happen in such a litigious society as there US ? Its a law suit waiting to happen.
The mind boggles !

How is the guy doing??? I am a physician, am somewhat familiar with iatrogenic coma, and hope he has improved..Our gym is fairly small and it seems much more crowded with girls' and boys' teams both are training AND there are pre-team and recreational classes going on all together, compared with family open gym, where nobody seems to be doing anything out of their comfort zone. The coaches seem to be familiar with everyone who participates in open gym, and also they took out the trampoline to make more room for other things and trampoline always has been the biggest safety concern. Also, usually the diagonals are not available on floor, because they have obstacle courses, cheese mats, and whatnot set up for the little kids, so there is a third of the floor marked off for tumbling and the most important thing is keep your kids from crossing it. What seems more dangerous from what I have seen is adult night, not from the few parents and other adults, including a ~70 year old man. But there are teenage parkuour (spelling?) practitioners who come in and do crazy things and one of them got hurt not at the gym but at a trampoline place where I have gone with my kids for birthday parties, and I heard one of the coaches telling her optional girls not to go to that place. It's too tempting for them with trampolines wall to wall, and they are very small tramps, not much room to land, and what we heard was that the parcuour boy hit his head on the side of one of them doing a multiple-twisting double something. He had a concussion, but apparently not as bad as the guy from your gym, and he's better now and has come in again at night. So maybe the idea here is supervision, supervision, supervision, and vigilance...He had to be induced into a coma and had brain surgery...My opinion, open gym is not worth it
