When a child suffers a personal injury at a YMCA and / or a day care center, an investigation will typically be conducted by the facility and in some instances by local law enforcement, fire rescue, and / or the social welfare agency that regulates day care and child care facilities. Some incidents involving an injury to a child are unexpected and unforeseeable. Others, however, are foreseeable and more importantly preventable with better supervision and better equipment in place.
