User Review: Ozark Trail Air Mattress Velour Top
Price Paid: $82.84
I purchased this new Ozark Trail Queen Size Memory Foam Elevated Air Bed with Pump at Wal-Mart to sleep overnight at my sister’s house with my family. My wife and I and our 8-month-old twins were sleeping on it that night. Around 3:30 a.m. April 20th, 2006, my wife awoke and could not find baby Amelia anywhere, only to find her stuck in the space between the wall and the semi-deflated mattress, which had smothered her.
Needless to say my little girl suffocated that night. Her death was due to the faulty air mattress made by Ozark Trail and sold by Wal-Mart. I absolutely discourage the use of this air mattress by anyone, especially by babies and small children.
We followed all the proper inflation and weight restrictions/ instructions. The packaging states that it is guaranteed not to leak air, and is made to support up to 600 lbs. Nowhere on the package or product does it warn against being unsafe for babies or children in any form. This is a deadly air bed.
