A notable exception in the law relating to trespassers that imposes a special
duty of care on a person maintaining an artificial condition on land which attracts
children (e.g., a swimming pool). Under the attractive nuisance doctrine, children
enjoy the status and protection of invitees. In some cases, the landowner has
been held absolutely liable for injuries to children in connection with an attractive
nuisance even though the children were trespassers.
