According to Missouri premises liability law, the doctrine of attractive nuisance applies to child trespassers. This doctrine of attractive nuisance states that a land owner may be responsible for child injuries, even if he or she was unaware of the child’s presence. For example, a property owner could be held responsible for a child who trespasses and falls into an abandoned swimming pool. According to the doctrine of attractive nuisance, the owner should have known that pool could attract a curious child and taken adequate measures to prevent accidents.
