Description:This was one of two images (see PHIL 9386), showing a young boy who was using a microwave oven that had been installed beneath a kitchen countertop. Installed at this level, it was easily accessible by shorter individuals, people who use wheelchairs, and as was the case here, children. This might be part of a universal array if another microwave were installed higher for other users.
