A warning has been sent out to parents after a child fell on glass that was left smashed in a playground sandpit.
Child cut after someone leaves broken glass all over sandpit in south Dublin playground
The child had been playing in the pit in Kingswood Heights in south Dublin when they fell before a resident noticed the area was full of broken glass.
The local then cleared it up before letting local group Kingswood Heights Residents know to be vigilant when their kids are in playgrounds.
They said: "Mind your kids in the playground.
"A resident was in contact to say they were in the playground this morning and a child fell on glass in the sandpit and cut himself.
"After that, they found and cleared up glass in the sand pit and the bark, see photo.
"The playground is a great facility for young families in the area.
"The council empty bins and clean up twice a week, but it's in our interests to also keep it safe and clean for our young kids to use."
