My nephew was running an obstacle course at school and ran into a metal bar. The bar knocked out 4 teeth, broke his cleft pallet and split his lip in four different spots. The gym teacher can not tell us why the bar was there, and we were told that had my nephew been taller he could have been strangled. Also, the obstacle course in general seems to have other unsafe elements such as having the children run UP the slide. The school did not call 911 because they said that he wasn't crying so they just gave him a wash cloth and ice. In our opinion thats all the more reason to have called 911- the boy just lost his teeth and was in shock!
