Luke was really excited to visit a local trampoline park, but that excitement quickly faded.

A worker gave him the OK to jump and when he did, the airbag was not inflated properly and Luke fell down to the cement floor, injuring his back and causing a concussion.

He's doing betterĀ but is fortunate because of the way he landed.
