Fox 26's Katie ...

Fox 26's Katie McCall is live in the newsroom with the mother's reaction. Katie?

Katie: Don and Melinda, Pump It Up of the Woodlands is a popular destination for children's birthday parties and other outings, but almost everyone has heard of these bouncy house facilities.
...
Katie: Kimberly is angry at Pump It Up of the Woodlands because of an accident that happened three years ago, one that changed her then nine-year-old son's life forever.
Kimberly: There's no surgery, there is nothing that can go in and repair his brain.
Katie: The boy and his brother were on this object called the Chaos. This animated simulation used in court, shows what happened next. The boys were on a part of it that is not intended for climbing, when the boy's younger brother jumped down, the older boy was thrown up and fell seven feet onto a concrete floor, cracking his skull.
Plaintiff's Attorney: That pushed the air up in that single chamber and basically, propelled the older brother off onto his head, he received a skull fracture, and three brain bleeds.
Katie: A jury found Pump It Up of the Woodlands negligent.
Plaintiff's Attorney: They should never have been allowed to climb up there, and if they were supervising properly, it never would have happened.
Katie: Texas law says there should be one employee monitoring children for each inflatable object, but when the fall occurred not a single monitor was in the room.
Plaintiff's Attorney: The reason why they had zero monitors is there was a conscious choice on the part of one of the managers of Pump It Up of the Woodlands to have their one attendant go between two different rooms, and there were four inflatables in each room.
Katie: Kimberly's son is now 13, and she says the former A and B student suffers from significant developmental delays.
Kimberley: He struggles, academically.
Katie: Doctors testified that he has lesions on three areas of the brain that control things like memory, language, and impulse, causing emotional and cognitive problems for which there are no simple solutions.
Kimberley: Emotionally he will have anger outbursts as well as just crying at school, at home. He went from having friends to not really having friends. His ability to make decisions has changed. He can't really make good decisions on his own. He is very impulsive. We have sleep issues.
Katie: The family was awarded $1,312,000, money that will help with the boy's needs, but Kimberly hopes it will also prevents this from ever happening to someone else's child.
Kimberley: This is not acceptable. You shouldn't go to an amusement inflatable place and have your life changed forever.
Katie: We contacted Pump It Up of the Woodlands for comment but we have not received a response from them yet. One important thing for parents to know that even if you sign a waiver for your child to enter a facility like Pump It Up, that waiver is not legally enforceable. That's because in Texas you cannot legally waive any child's right against injury, so in spite of that signature, you can still sue these facilities if they break the law and your child is hurt.
