Thanks for the post, Bazinga, although it has me in tears!

A young boy just died in WA from this a few weeks ago - in his case it was a television on top of a dresser that killed him.

My heart goes out to both families.

So sad.

We came to close to tragedy a couple of years ago with DS.  In our case it was a TV, not a slimline one but the chunky heavy ones, he pulled it off the tv cabinet and had it not been for a coffee table below it which it his first, it taking the brunt of the fall before crashing to the floor.

The TV went that day and in place a new slimline one fastened high on the wall out of reach.

Thinking of all these families.
