New Zealand doctors have warned children that jumping for joy can hurt them, according to a newspaper report.
Doctors at Starship Children's Hospital, Auckland, have called for restrictions on trampoline sales because of the rising number of children being injured while jumping on them, the New Zealand Herald reported.
