<span> Tens of thousands of children are injured on slides each year. (196459002) (RNN) – Heather Clare shares the shocking picture so it will not happen again. </p>
<p>  The photo shows the exact moment when her daughter Meadows leg broke while the two went down a slide together. </p>
<p>  The incident happened three years ago, but Clare insists on publishing it on social media every year to show potential danger to other parents. </p>
<p>  "I walked the slide with her on my lap, and her foot was caught between me and the slide," she said in a Facebook post. "This image is the moment her leg broke, and she is still smiling … because it happened at that very moment." </p><div><script async src=

The injury is a common injury, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.

"Slipping on a parent's lap can lead to a fall of a broken leg for small children," the group's report on slip resistance said. "An estimated 352,698 children under the age of 6 were injured on slides in the United States between 2002 and 201

5, and many of these injuries were leg fractures."

For the then 1-year-old Meadow, her broken leg meant four weeks in a pink cast. Three years later, she is fine and she is happy 4 years old.

"I share this image every year in the hope that the pain feels Meadow and the guilt that I still feel will save other babies and parents from dying the same," Clare said.

"Never go down with a baby in your lap – there is no safe way to ride a slide with your little child [one].
