From this month's issue of "Clinical Pediatrics", there is a warning to parents. As many as 66 children are injured every day, by a shopping cart.
This comes from the nationwide children's hospital, after researchers there have been following such emergency room records, since 1990.
Now, this study has revealed that more than a half million children under the age of 15 have been treated for a shopping cart injury, many falling head first over the cart, or landing under a cart that has tipped over on them.
You can guess the bottom line on this one. The study says parents need to keep a close eye on kids near a shopping cart, and make sure the little ones riding are always buckled in.
