According to a new report, almost 200,000 CHILDREN have been hospitalized in the U.S. in the past two decades from FALLING TVs.
And 215 children have died. Six kids have died from falling TVs since January of last year.
And it isn't just a new phenomenon with lighter, modern TVs that can tip over. Injuries also happened with our old, gigantic TVs . . . sometimes from kids trying to climb on them.
But . . . it seems safe to say flat-screen TVs are a lot more likely to tip over and land on a kid's head. The injury rate from falling TVs DOUBLED from 1990 to 2011.
The most common injuries are head and neck injuries, including concussions. Kids under five are most likely to be injured. (ABC News)
