“He wouldn’t stop screaming,” Amanda Insley, Thomas’s mother, said on Monday afternoon.

Insley said Thomas was wearing shoes but wouldn’t stop taking them off, and so she decided not to fight with him. She believed he would be fine playing barefoot in a water area designed for kids.

He ran onto the metal door, screamed, and fell into a sitting position, Brandon Donnelly, Thomas’s father, said.

“I ran and picked him up,” Donnelly said, explaining that when they tried to stand Thomas on his feet he screamed again. They discovered the burns on the bottom of his feet and called 911, soaking his feet in cold water until the ambulance arrived.

Insley wants other parents to be aware of the hazard.

“You wouldn’t think he’d have to keep his shoes on and not be able to run around a splash pad. I want to make sure no one else got hurt. Even if he had shoes, what if he had fallen on it? He would have burned his hands, his face. He was literally two seconds,” she said.

Parents of toddler who died at Vancouver daycare unable to locate operator to sue her

Parents of toddler who died at Vancouver daycare unable to locate operator to sue her Sixteen-month-old Mac Saini, known as Baby Mac, died at the Olive Branch Daycare on Jan. 18, 2017. According to a lawsuit filed by Saini's family, his mother Shelley Sheppard arrived at the East Vancouver home where the daycare operated to find the facility overcrowded with children and her son lifeless on the floor. The suit alleges Baby Mac died after choking on an electrical cord and alleges negligence, claiming the toddler was left alone.

“What would happen if a kid face-planted on it?” Donnelly said. “It’s just a really bad design flaw.”

On Monday morning, city staff painted the door bright yellow. A wooden sawhorse was positioned over the door as well.

“It’s nice that they’re trying, but it’s not going to help another kid,” Insley said. “That’s still going to get really hot.”

The city said in an emailed statement from Sheila Kidd, commissioner, transportation and public works, that “we have been in contact with the family to express our sincere concern. Work crews have examined the Shannon Park splash pad site and painted the grate and placed barriers around it until a more permanent solution can be implemented.

“The safety of everyone using our facilities is of utmost importance and we are committed to ensuring that members of the public are able to enjoy our spaces safely,” Kidd said.

Thomas’s parents said he is receiving over-the-counter painkillers and using topical ointments on the burns. He is to return to KGH to have dead tissue removed from the bottom of his feet and to monitor for nerve damage. His feet are bandaged, and Insley and Donnelly said they have been told to keep him from walking on his feet for several days — no small task with an on-the-move toddler.

Thomas’s parents hope his injury will lead to a permanent solution to the hazard.

“I like that they made an effort to fix it, but I don’t like the fact that he had to get hurt for them to do something,” Donnelly said. “Somebody should have done it before.”

Insley and Donnelly said they likely won’t return to the local splash pad, which was conveniently located to their home.

“We’re not doing that one again,” Insley said. “I just don’t want another little one to get hurt.”
