This past Monday (Oct 28th), I was cleaning up the dinner dishes while my 5 and 3 year old played in their toy room. Just a few minutes after they went in, I heard crying and screaming. My 3 year old had wrapped the cords from our blinds around our 5 year old son's neck! He is okay, other than a laceration around his neck. These were not looped blinds. They are double corded and they were tied up and behind the blinds. I thought they were out of sight and reach. This is a danger that could happen to anyone and I am sharing our story to help others to realize that they may not be as safe as they think. Please check us out on our provincial news program and share with your friends and families so that we can all learn and check our homes, and perhaps protect other children from the same or worse. Thanks!
