So, here I am at work this morning with a small 6 lane "coffee league" bowling. On the left side of the house we have 2 lanes of disabled children with parks and rec... bowling as well. Usually we book no groups during a league at all! But one of our guys did it for some unknown reason... So, the first alarming thing is that all of the "adults" are no older than 20yrs old themselves... So, one little girl probably around 7 or 8yrs old with down syndrome runs about 45ft down the lane and falls before one of the "adults" runs out to retrieve them. I walked down and politely informed them of the dangers of crossing the "foul line" and that if it becomes a problem I will have to shut the lanes down. So about 5 minutes goes by, and one of my ladys in the league who I was helping let's out a "OMG!" I look up from the computer screen where I was making a score correction for the league and there sits the little girl about 2ft from the pins!!! Sitting down Indian style! I immediately turn and hit my blackout switch.... wich in turn shut the league down (they are pissed) but it saved the little girl from potentially being killed by the machine as the sweep had already started down, as I cut the power. I run down the lane as the "adult" is getting her off the pin deck... and I tell her that they are going to give me a heart attack! She says they are going to hold her until it's time to leave. (Really wanted to tell them its already time to leave) My blood pressure went so high I thought I was gonna pass out... The machine would have definitely killed that girl, that I'm 100% positive of, considering the way she was positioned and cycle the machine was on. A second longer and it would have been a VERY bad day. We are not a daycare service! Blows my mind; that three 20 or younger college kids get turned loose with a group of disabled kids, when a few of them need constant 1 on 1 attention/care! Really considering calling the director of Parks and Rec and having a conversation about who they let take kids out. What would you have done?
