(FOX NEWS) – A New York mother is using a photo of the exact moment her daughter’s leg broke as a dire warning to others about the dangers of a seemingly harmless playground ritual.

Heather Clare, of Long Island, was at the park with her then 12-month-old twins and was taking them down a plastic slide.

In a photo captured by her husband, a smiling Clare is seen holding daughter Meadow on her lap as they make their way down a green plastic slide.

But at the center of the photo, Meadow’s foot is bent in the opposite direction after it became wedged between her mother’s leg and the slide. Clare said they wound up in an awkward leaning position after she realized what was happening and had tried to stop their sliding.
