  1. Fire hydrant play : injuries and their prevention.

    Article - En anglais

    A total of 86 children treated for injuries that occurred while playing in water from fire hydrants are described.

    Patients were urban (100%), minority (97%) children with few alternative means for keeping cool.

    Injuries occurred on extremely hot summer days (mean maximum temperature 36.3oC [97.5oF]). Laceration of the foot on broken glass was the most common injury and was prevented by wearing footwear (P<.001).
