The family of a little Brampton boy whose feet were burned at a splash pad earlier this summer is pursuing legal action. Back in July, one-year-old Greyson Pelvin was visiting a splash pad in Georgetown with family and friends during when he wandered from the splash pad and stepped on scalding hot ground-level metal doors that protect the controls for the splash pad water jets. He suffered second-degree burns to his feet and a minor burn to one of his hands. Lawyers of the family are not saying how much they are seeking in terms of compensation at this time. But, the Pelvin family is claiming against the town of Halton Hills because the splash pad was in the jurisdiction of the township and they have responsibility for it.
Is the city to blame? Or the parents for failing to watch the child?
