Study Shows Deaths from Window Blinds Needs to Be Addressed
According to a new study published in the journal Pediatrics, the number of kids killed by window blinds in the U.S. is an issue that needs to be addressed.
The study shows that despite decades of safety concerns, children's injuries and deaths from window blinds have not gone down.
Between 1990 and 2015 nearly 17,000 young children were hurt by window blinds - that's roughly two kids a day.
Though most injuries were minor, nearly 300 of those hurt died. Most deaths took place when kids got entangled or strangled by the cords.
Those responsible for the study are recommending a complete ban on all blinds with cords.
