    Falling TVs are sending children to the ER every 30 mins

    http://www.today.com/health/falling-...tes-6C10679996

    The number of kids injured by a TV falling on them grew 125 percent between 1990 and 2011, according to a new study of emergency room records that calls for greater prevention efforts. Overall, more than 17,000 children under age 18 were treated each year for various TV-related injuries in ERs across the United States – that’s one child every half hour – during that time period, the study released Monday in the journal Pediatrics found.

    Between 2000 and 2011, 215 children died from injuries caused by a falling TV.

    In 1990 most TVs were fat heavy floor models.

    Most everyone has a tv hanging on a wall in they're house now. Lots of them put up improperly.

    The study did not differentiate between injuries caused by falling flat-screen televisions and the older, heavier cathode ray tube sets

    Sounds like it would be old tube sets causing the kind of injury that would send you to the ER. I certainly couldnt see my Samsung LED flat screen doing that.
