Child Deaths due to Falling televisions…?

A recent article, which I decided garnered mention here, even though it is not directly related to Information Technology per se, talks about the subject of children being injured or killed after heavy furniture, in this case, older television sets, fell on top of them.

The full article can be found by clicking: InsideTech Article Link but an astonishing number of child injuries and deaths occurred from 1990 – 2007, where the death / injury rate, starting in 1990 at about 19 per 100,000, increased each year to about 23 per 100,000 in 2007, peaking at about 26 per 100,000 in 2004.

Something to think about for those that have kids in homes with older CRT sets.
