This case involves an injury to an elementary school student. The plaintiff, an eight-year-old boy, was playing outside during his class recess. The students were permitted to play on a large field but were prohibited from going on the playground because of construction. Yet, the safety measures only consisted of a warning given to students prior to going outside. There were only three teachers assigned to monitor the two hundred students playing outside. The plaintiff wandered onto the construction site that was empty as construction crew had left for lunch. A large piece of lumber fell onto the child, severely injuring him. The plaintiff sustained a broken leg and a dislocated shoulder.
