Hidden Dangers

24 February 2010
Curtain cords have killed 15 young children!

A campaign has recently been launched titled the National Curtain & Blind Cord Safety Campaign to bring to homeowner’s attention he dangers that loose cords represent to young children.

According to the organisers a total of 15 children have been killed in Australia since the 1990’s with two killed just last year. In both recent incidents the children had become entangled in the cords and were strangled, dying within minutes of being left alone by an adult.

The message that the National Check and Fix Your Blind and Curtain Cord campaign is trying to convey is that loose curtains can kill. They should be fixed so they`re well out of reach of young children. << back to news articles
