Beware of Falling Televisions

The rate of children under 18 requiring emergency treatment from falling televisions has increased by 95.3%, and in those younger than 5 the increase was 125.5% over the past 22 years. The rate of injuries from a TV falling from a dresser, chest of drawers or armoire increased by 344% in the same period. The authors suggest this may may be due to increases in the number of TVs per household, and the advent of the flat screen TV.

PositiveTip: Make sure your TVs are securely mounted to prevent tipping/falling injuries.
