The spring was embedded more than 2 inches into the boy's back and required an emergency surgery to remove it, the Leader reported.
“When I was in the waiting room there, I was really nervous,” Jamie said.
“Sometimes it still feels like the spring is in my back, but I am getting a lot better and stronger now. I feel relieved that it wasn’t worse.”
Ian Quinlan said it was a very scary situation for the family.
"I want people to be aware of how dangerous trampolines can be if there's no cover on the springs, or if there's a gap," he told the newspaper.
Thousands of people are injured in trampoline accidents every year. In 2014, almost 105,000 people were treated in hospital emergency rooms for trampoline-related injuries, including broken bones, concussions, sprains and neck injuries, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
