'Lightning' slide recalled after children lose fingers

At least two children have suffered amputated fingers because of broken welds on stainless steel playground slides.

About 1,300 of the "Lightning" model metal slides were recalled because the welds connecting the slide bedway to the sidewalls can crack and separate, according to a news release from the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The classic-style slide was sold to parks, schools and cities throughout the country over the last 16 years.

Consumers should immediately stop using the slides and contact Playworld for a free replacement and installation of a new slide.

 Playworld is aware of 13 incidents of broken welds.
