Recently, an 11-month-old infant died when his 2-year-old brother bumped into the furniture holding the family's television, causing it to fall and crush the infant's head and abdomen. Although this seems like a rare occurrence, over 43,000 people are treated in emergency rooms every year for injuries related to the instability of televisions, furniture, and appliances. Around 58 percent of the injuries involve children under the age of 18. Of the 293 reported fatalities occurring during the last decade, 245 tip-over-related deaths involved children 8 years old and younger. More than 90 percent of these fatal incidents involve children 5 years old and younger. The majority of these fatalities occur when the child is crushed by the weight of the television or furniture.
