Mum's warning after toddler injured when changing table collapsed

A mum is considering legal action against a pub in Sydney’s north after a change table collapsed with her son on it.

Louis Cadey, 2, was at the Woolwich Pier Hotel two weeks ago when his mum Rene claims the table collapsed and fell on top of him while she was trying to change him.

“I found him down on his front, head to the side,” Ms Cadey told Seven News.

“You have these venues – ‘family friendly?’ No.”

The toddler was rushed to hospital and doctors said he suffered mild concussion.

His mum said if her son was younger or smaller “it would have been much different”.

Woolwich Pier Hotel said in a statement the installer was liable.

“If the change table was correctly installed and correctly used the table should not fall from the wall,” it said.

But Davidson Washrooms told Seven News the change table was considered safe when it was installed in November.

It’s not known who’s liable for the incident.

“There are so many rigorous checks around things,” Ms Cadey said.

“Surely this is just as important.”

The family are now considering legal action.
