A recent report, published in the journal Clinical Pediatrics by researchers at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, has stated that almost 17,000 children were rushed to ERs after heavy or unstable furniture fell on them. Those injuries had risen 41% since 1990. Forty seven percent of them were caused by televisions, many bigger flat-panel TVs.
