Toddler Dies At QLD Playground Centre Inflatable World

A three year old has died in hospital after sustaining injuries at a Queensland play centre, Inflatable World Toowoomba on Sunday.

The toddler passed away on Monday evening, prompting an investigation by Police and Workplace Health and Safety to determine how he died. 

He was discovered at the bottom of a slide with injuries to the back of his head and taken to Toowoomba Hospital, police said.

He was transferred to Brisbane's Lady Cilento Children's Hospital where he died on Monday afternoon.

Police have appealed for anyone who may have witnessed the boy playing at the centre on Sunday to contact them.

Inflatable World Toowoomba posted a statement on Facebook on Tuesday sending their condolences to the boy's family.

"We are devastated by the news that a child has passed away in hospital after collapsing at our venue on Sunday afternoon," the post says.

Inflatable World also say a full investigation involving all relevant authorities, as well as an internal investigation, is underway.
