They prepared for years to be great parents, and as soon as they gave birth to Charlie, they knew parenting would come as a breeze. They never anticipated this tragic accident that would take his life and change theirs forever.
One day, when Charlie was just two and a half years old, Mom laid him down for a nap and left him alone in the room. Moments later he woke up and attempted to climb onto his dresser. The pull of his weight made the dresser topple down onto his body and crush him. The dresser that took his life was only 30-inches high.
The simple mistake that these parents and so many other parents make is not anchoring their furniture. A television set falling from an average size dresser can strike a child’s body with the force of a thousand pounds. An average of 25,000 children are injured every year by tipping furniture, and anchoring furniture to studs in the wall ensures more children won’t become statistics from these tragic accidents.
Fortunately, anti-tip devices are inexpensive and are simple to install. To prevent your child from a tipping accident, watch this 2-minute video and learn just how easy it is to secure your furniture! You just might save your child’s life.
