Accidents are the Biggest Killer of Small Children
According to the National Centre for Health Statistics, accidents are the biggest killer of small children. In 2014 there were 1,216 recorded deaths from unintentional injuries for children between the ages of 1 and 4, and 730 deaths for children aged between 5 and 9. It is estimated that one infant is strangled to death every month in the United States from window blinds, and it has become such a grave issue that stores such as Ikea and Target have already removed corded blinds from their shelves, with other big stores such as Walmart to follow in 2018.
Unfortunately, accidents caused by window blinds are also a big issue in the UK. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has found that at least 18 child deaths have been caused by looped blinds since 2010, and a report from Chief Medical Offers suggests that there are still millions of potentially unsafe blinds in homes across the UK which could cause future tragedies.
