Safe Kids group warns of danger of toppling TVs

The Safe Kids Bartholomew County initiative is warning about the danger of unsecured TV standsĀ and dressers in your home.

That’s after a video went viral showing a dresser toppling over on top of toddlers. Safe Kids says that many flat screen TVs are top-heavy with narrow bases and can be easily pulled off an entertainment center or table. Large and heavy old-style TVs placed on dressers or high furniture can also tip over if children climb the drawers. They suggest using wall mounts for flat screen TVs and furniture straps to keep dressers from toppling.
