By Sarah Fazli Published: July 22, 2018 0 SHARES Share Tweet Email “It was around 40-feet above the ground when it crashed. There was a loud bang and people ran here and there.” We often complain of lack of recreational activities in Karachi – a city which can easily be labelled a foodie’s paradise, but with few other entertainment outlets available. Any new addition to the leisure scene in the city is always welcomed with arms wide open – and Askari Parks’ opening was no exception to this reception. One might recall Funland in Clifton, the Sindbad franchise across Karachi, Aladdin Water Park in Gulshan, Nisar Shaheed Park in Defence and Go Aish in Gulshan.

(Reuters Health) - One in five parents don’t talk to their kids about safety issues at amusement parks, especially what to do if they get lost, according to a poll by the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan. More than 30,000 children are injured each year at amusement parks and carnivals in the U.S., according to the Mott Poll report. “Parents can take certain actions that can help to keep their children safe,” said Dr. Gary Freed of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, who co-directs the poll. “Parents should have a plan with their child about what to do,” Freed told Reuters Health by email. “Parents should make sure their child is properly restrained in any ride, and be aware of any improper actions on the part of ride operators.” The national survey is based on responses from more than 1,200 parents with at least one child between ages 5 and 12 in early 2018. About 82 percent said their child had been to an … [Read more...] about Parents often lack amusement-park safety plans
