When personal and professional collide!

Thank you to Dr Davies and colleagues for their timely reminder about super‐hero related injuries1. My 3‐year‐old son has a Spider‐man bicycle, Spider‐man slippers, Spider‐man bicycle helmet and Spider‐man suit (non‐padded). I note this means he is in the highest risk group.

Therefore I warned him not to jump out of windows and break his arm. He reassured me, “No dad – I will not break my arm when I jump out of windows”.


Competing interests: None.
