Children in Danger

The second most common accidents amongst children occur when they bump into people, things or are hurt by falling objects. Burns and scalds occur as the third most common, mostly from hot drinks and hot water from a kettle. Poisonings from medicines, garden and household chemicals are the fourth most frequent accidents within the home. The most common causes of injury-related deaths are transport accidents, drowning, and intentional injuries, including self-harm and assault. Unintentional injury deaths are most often related to transport, responsible for 41% of injury deaths among 1 to 9 year olds.
