VIDEO: Missouri boy claims monkey bars at camp burned him


(KRON/CNN) — A 10-year-old boy in Missouri says he burned his hands on hot playground equipment.

10-year-old Jesse James Turkington says he was at a summer camp in St. Louis when he got hurt.

“We were playing at the recess time, and I went on the monkey bars, and it was so hot that it burnt my hand,” Turkington said.

While Turkington continues to heal, his grandmother has a message to share with other parents.

“Be reminded because almost all of playground equipment is almost directly into the sun,” Alexandra Spence said.

The school district says it has a heat policy, which is when temperatures reach a heat index of 100, no activities are done outside.

No word on how hot it was that day.
