CPSC estimates that more than 43,000 consumers are injured each year in tip-over incidents. More than 25,000 (59 percent) of those injuries are to children under the age of 18. Falling furniture accounts for more than half (52 percent) of the injury reports. Falling televisions have proven to be more deadly, as they are associated with more than half (62 percent) of reported fatalities.


When I first saw the headline I thought it was a joke, but on reading the figures, I was shocked by the numbers. Thought I should post this a warning to everyone out there with kids. Lock it down people, especially that 200 inch tv. That's not the way to get the kids on the big screen.

Oh. Well. I looked at the thread title and thought: "Holy cow! What a massacre!"

I mean. Boy. That would have been terrible....

When I first saw the title I thought maybe people had been throwing more furniture out the window.
(I wish I was kidding)
