The Consumer Product Safety Commission is urging parents to make their homes safer for young children by anchoring televisions and furniture.
A new report shows that between the years 2000 and 2010, the CPSC received reports of 245 tip-over related deaths involving children eight years old and younger.
In more than half of the fatalities, the child was crushed by a television, furniture,or appliance.
The CPSC says more than 22,000 young children are treated in hospital ER's every year due to tip-over incidents.
