Description: The Consumer Products Safety Commission is warning parents to secure TVs, appliances and furniture to prevent accidental tip-over.
The CPSC estimates that approximately 16,000 children under the age of 5 were treated in emergency rooms for tip-over related injuries (2006 estimates). To prevent injury, parents are encouraged to:
--Anchor furniture to the floor or wall to prevent tipping and ensure all free-standing appliances have anti-tip brackets
--Place TV on sturdy, low-rise stand and push TV back as far as possible
--Keep electrical cords out of child's reach
--Keep items that could entice your child's curiosity off of TV stands
