Vivien Weiqi shared a video to her blog, Beautiful Chaos, showing her completely submerged in the pool of balls. She sticks her hand above the surface and calls for help many times, until her domestic helper (who was taking the video) realizes she is in distress.
“Not long into the play, I lost my balance in the ball pit and fell backwards. I could not reach the bottom and I could not stand up. I tried to roll over, I couldn’t. I tried to find the net so I could grip it, I couldn’t. My son was stuck inside too,” she wrote alongside the video.
However, despite her panic, she doesn’t think the experience should put parents off letting their kids play in the pool, as long as there is adult supervision — adding that her husband will be accompanying her son in future.
A local report said that the play center’s operator was holding a safety review following Weiqui’s experience.
