I was watching the news for the Chicago area and the first story was that 3 young children have died in the last 3 months from tvs falling on them. Lets make sure our tvs are safe so our kids dont get hurt.

We have our flat screen mounted high up on the wall, just for that reason!

When my DD was in the PICU there was a page for a Code White (pediatric code blue). It was in the ER but we heard the nurses talking about it and preparing the next room for the patient. He was 2 years old and had someone pulled his family's big TV down on him. He never made it up to the PICU unfortunately. It was the 2nd time that week I had heard of a young child being crushed by furniture that should have been secured to the wall. That was the first thing we did when we got home- secured our tall bookself to the wall. Our TV is already mounted. So sad. :-( I could never forgive myself if my child died from a preventable accident.

That's sad. Unfortunately we have no where to mount ours, but I'm not a fail as a parent, and leave my children unattended in the living room with a t.v. that isn't secured to something.
