POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – A scuffle at a South Florida trampoline park has left a child hospitalized and some parents want a mother held accountable for her alleged role.
Video of the incident shows children being punched and kicked.
What began as a game at the SkyZone in Pompano Beach ended in a brawl on the trampolines.
A teenager who has asked Local 10 News not to reveal his identity is one of two children who say they were attacked after a game by other teenagers and one of those teenagers’ mothers.
“The mother said, ‘No, just fight him here, we’ll go in a moment,’ and everyone just jumped on me and my friends,” the teen said. “And the mother stepped on my head.”
A mother of one of the children involved was too distraught to show her face in front of the camera.
“My son was bleeding, blood all over his mouth, he has a black eye,” she said. “The video, I can’t even watch it. I’m just horrified. How can an adult do that?”
The adult they are referring to can be seen in the video holding a little girl’s hand and fighting with the teenagers.
The video clip does not clearly show what her role in the fight was.
Gerlene Noel is the aunt of a second teenager who she says was also jumped and injured in the fight.
“To my understanding, there were two incidents,” Noel said.
Her nephew was checked for bumps and bruises on his head at a local hospital.
“He could have been knocked unconscious, it could have caused any kind of internal bleeding,” she said.
This is also not the first such incident at this Sky Zone location.
Local 10 News reported another violent episode at the trampoline park in June last year.
Another teenager was brutally kicked, punched and even beaten with a stick.
Both families involved in this latest incident have a message for SkyZone.
“Hire more security,” said the mother of the first teen.
And for the woman they say was involved in the battle, here’s what they had to say.
“What you did was screwed up,” Noel said.
“You will be found and you will pay for what you did,” added the teen’s mother.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office said the violent incident is being investigated but could not say if the adult these families believe was involved is being investigated.
Local 10 News has also reached out to SkyZone and is awaiting their response.
