When children are young, they like to explore and become familiar with new objects and places. This can include climbing on furniture, such as dressers, bookshelves, televisions or a TV stand. Climbing on furniture or reaching for items in high places can cause furniture to become unbalanced and tip over.
According to a Consumer Product Safety Commission report released in November of 2019, 459 children have died from tip-over incidents between 2000 and 2018 in the United States; 158 of those fatalities involved televisions and furniture. More than two-thirds of total fatalities occurred to children between 1 and 3.5 years of age; and nearly 80% of all fatalities involved children 5 years old and younger.
Injuries related to tip-overs are a daily concern, with an annual average of 12,500 children receiving treatment at an emergency department from 2016-2018. A child is injured from a tip-over almost every 43 minutes. Furthermore, a fatality occurs nearly every 12 days from a tip-over.
Tip-overs generally occur in the home – more than 9 out of 10 deaths happened in this setting. More so, nearly half of all tip-over deaths occur in a bedroom.
