Полгода назад в Чикаго открылся знаменитый парк Мэгги Дели. Где-то в районе зеркального боба. Никогда не был. Говорили, что там есть детская площадка с горками, высотой превосходящими даже ракету в Таврическом саду.
Теперь говорят, что поток детей со сломанными в этом парке ногами привел к снижению безработицы в ортопедической индустрии.
Chicago mom Heather Ward says she had to rush her 14 month-old son, Gavin, to Lurie Children’s Hospital in June after he broke his leg on a smaller slide. Ward says she was astonished at what the hospital staff had to say. “The nurse told us there have been tons of injuries,” Ward said. “The orthopedic resident joked the injuries were keeping him in business.”

И т.д. и т.п.

В связи с этим коллеги из чикагского садово-паркового хозяйства опубликовали следующее заявление:
“Maggie Daley Park is one of the largest and busiest playgrounds in the city; since April, an estimated 400,000 people have visited the park's playground areas. While any injury sustained at a Chicago Park District facility is one too many, the rate of incident compared to the number of people that use the park is very low.
