Carthage child's death raises questions about furniture safety
"The way it happened, the odds were very highly against it, but just the way it happened unfortunately it took the child's life," says Carthage Police Chief Greg Dagnan.
The arrangement inside the house was not uncommon; the family had an old television set on a dresser in the spare bedroom. While it was ruled an accident, even the police department was shocked that the TV had fallen. Manuals often state that if the weight of the TV is too much for a piece of furniture to handle, it should be secured to a wall.KOAM TV 7
