Increase Of Boise Children Injured By Falling From Windows
Doctors at St. Luke's Children's Hospital are seeing a startling number of children this year who were hurt from falling out of windows.
Since April, Saint Al’s and St. Luke's in Boise have treated nine children who've fallen out of windows.
There are safety measures you can take to ensure your child doesn't become a victim, including window locks and window screen bars. Also, don't place any furniture a child could crawl on next to windows.
Window safety is often overlooked. It may sound silly, but getting on your hands and knees and look at your home as a child would or as a toddler would is a smart idea.
