Kids continue to get hurt with TV injuries

Posted:

LUBBOCK,TX (KCBD) - The Journal Clinical Pediatrics finds nearly 15-thousand kids are sent to the emergency room each year for injuries caused by tipping over furniture or the tv.

Despite warnings, the number of these tip-over injuries has gone up 40% since the early '90's. Most of the cases are kids under age 7. So, the study suggests parents place televisions low to the ground or secured against the wall so the children won't have the tv. or furniture topple over them.
