Injuries from window blinds send two children to the emergency department every day

Almost 17,000 children under six years of age were treated in hospital emergency departments in the US for window blind-related injuries from 1990 through 2015, averaging almost two per day. While the majority of children were treated and released, there was about one child death each month — most from strangulation when a child became entangled by the neck in a window blind cord.
