Schoolboy cheats death when a spring becomes embedded in his back after trampoline accident

A schoolboy narrowly cheated death when a metal spring catapulted into his back in a freak trampoline accident. Jamie Quinlan, 12, was bouncing on his friend’s trampoline when the spring shot out at 70mph “like a bullet”. The terrified youngster collapsed in agony when the 6ins metal coil ripped through his T-shirt and lodged in his back – just centimetres from his spine. He was rushed to hospital by ambulance where surgeons removed the spring which created a 6cm-deep hole in his skin. His parents Ian, 62, and Sandra, 55, who have two other sons, are speaking out about the dangers of garden toys following the freak accident last weekend.
