Every year, more than 700 children under 4 years old are admitted to BC hospitals due to falls. Of these, more than half have head or brain injuries.
While most of us think our homes are a safe place for children, 80% of falls that injure young children happen at home. Learn more about ways to keep your children safe from falls!
