You see, too much television can kill.

Levity aside, this is very sad and my heart goes out to the family. Poor kid.

I read about accidents like this a few times each year........It's sad but accidents do happen.

Make sure that whatever your TV is sitting on (or any other heavy object) is screwed/tethered to the wall behind it.

I am so paranoid, I actually worry about stuff like this. Toilets, too, are a big hazard for toddlers. Their heads are big compared to the rest of their bodies and if they fall in, cannot get back out. We had a neighbor whose toddler drowned in their toilet.

That is sad. I wonder what if that is what happened to the Bratz dolls.
