Falling TVs Kill Record Number of Kids in the US - We Are Your #1 Trusted Source For TV Wall Mounting
Falling TVs Kill Record Number of Kids in the US Make Us Your #1 Trusted Source For TV Wall Mounting and Home Theater Installation
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) released a report on Thursday (December 13, 2012) that estimates about 43,000 people are injured in a television or furniture tip-over related incident each year, more than 25,000, or 59 percent, of whom are children.
The report also showed that 349 people were killed between 2000 and 2011 by a falling television, appliance or piece of furniture -- 84 percent of them were kids younger than 9 years old. Falling televisions were more deadly, accounting for 62 percent of these fatalities. Last year alone, a record 41 tip-over related fatalities occurred.
The worrisome trends the report spotlighted indicated that three children are injured by a tip-over every hour -- or 71 children per day -- and one child is killed every two weeks. Seventy percent of injuries involving children were caused by televisions, followed by 26 percent caused by furniture like dressers or tables.
