“Entré en pánico y no sabía qué hacer”: sufrió la peor experiencia de su vida tras ser “tragada” por una gigantesca piscina de pelotas

Una mujer y su hijo casi se “ahogaron” en un juego en Singapur.

Una madre y su hijo decidieron recorrer el City Square Mall en Singapur y disfrutar de uno de los nuevos juegos habilitados para toda la familia, pero terminaron sufriendo una de las peores experiencias de sus vidas.

Suspendida en el tercer piso hay una gigantesca piscina con más de 40 mil pelotas y ese fue el lugar elegido para pasar un buen rato.

Sin embargo, lo que comenzó como un juego terminó en pánico, ya que ambos temieron morir “ahogados” mientras eran “tragados” por el mar de pelotas.

Vivien Low relata que entró a la piscina con su hijo Riley de 4 años, pero que en un momento perdió el equilibrio y se fue de espaldas y no pudo retomar la vertical, indica The Straits Times.

“No podía llegar al fondo y no podía levantarme”, escribió la mujer en Facebook junto a un video que muestra el dramático momento.

“Entré en pánico y no sabía qué hacer. Grité pidiendo ayuda“, señaló Vivien, mientras en el video se puede ver como una sola mano de la mujer sobresale por sobre el mar blanquiazul.

Las imágenes se interrumpen cuando el hombre que estaba grabando se da cuenta de los problemas de su amiga y trata de ayudarla.

La mujer dijo que en un momento logró estabilizarse luego de agarrar la mano de alguien y que tras ello pudo salir. Luego ayudó a sacar a su hijo y a otros dos niños que también estaban desesperados.

Luego de la “angustiante” experiencia, los operadores del juego respondieron a los reclamos de la mujer en Facebook asegurando que revisarán “la cantidad de pelotas incluidas en la piscina”.

Además, según detalla Mirror, se asegurarán que “nuestro personal capacitado en primeros auxilios sea más rápido en su respuesta a cualquier solicitud de asistencia”.

Today I had the fright of my life. We went to the newly opened Air Zone at City Square Mall. I was afraid of heights. But my boy wanted to play. So I just went ahead. I thought the ball pit was the safest place of the 3 storey structure. But I was so wrong. Not long into the play, I lost my balance in the ball pit and fell backwards. I could not reach the bottom and I could not stand up. I tried to roll over, I couldn’t. I tried to find the net so I could grip it, I couldn’t. My son was stuck inside too. I panicked and waved and screamed for help. None came. I seriously panicked and did not know what to do. (My helper stoped the video when she realised something was wrong and shouted for help too but none came)I finally grabbed someone’s hand and managed to stabilise myself and stood up. And thereafter I pulled out my son, and 2 other kids: a boy and a girl. It was then the staff came by to help me drag the kids out of the balls before I climbed out. The kids all went in alone. They were about 6-8 years old. The girl was crying and I think she went out after the incident. Looking at the video which my helper had taken with the intention of taking us playing, there were about 4 heads under the pool of balls. At the side there was an adult pulling out another kid. Yes it was a nasty experience for me. I’m not going into the ball pit anymore. 😆 however, I will not stop my kids from playing there. But I will ensure an adult (my hubs) goes in with him. What’s the message I’m trying to bring across with this post? There is a certain level of danger in the playground and there is only so much the staff there can do. I appeal for you to go in with your kids. The more adults there is inside, you can help watch out for other kids. Just for info, the balls were up to about my armpits when I’m standing, and I’m 1.72m tall. Yes. Well yes it was fun, just not entirely suitable for young kids. Adult supervision needed. Lots of it. :)Edit to add:1. The structures are really sound. No doubt about that. Even if so happens the net you are on, tears for some reason, there is a second net below so you won’t fall. The issue is more about the availability and vigilance of the staff to render help when needed. 2. In the newspaper articles that followed, the claim was that there are 2-3 first aid trained staff on each level during peak hours. We were there on a Saturday afternoon. Is that a peak hour? Because there was only 1 staff per level. And the staff’s duty was to oversee the slides and attention was definitely not on the ball pit. I hope they have increased the number of staff since. And not just the number, the quality. No use being first aid trained and not alert to surroundings. 3. Why is everyone saying “drowning” when it was never mentioned in the original article? 😂#airzone #airzonesg #citysquaremall#embarassingmoment #jellylegs
