PAR­ENTS have been is­sued a warn­ing about the dan­gers of tread­mills af­ter a three-year-old girl from South Hed­land suf­fered se­ri­ous fric­tion burns. Act­ing Con­sumer Pro­tec­tion Com­mis­sioner David Hill­yard said many chil­dren were in­jured by fric­tion burns each year, while in se­vere ac­ci­dents chil­dren have needed skin grafts and lost the normal use of their fin­gers and hands. “Con­sumers need to be cau­tious when us­ing tread­mills when there are chil­dren in the home," he said.
