Toilets can kill small children
Toilets are just like buckets -- it is incredibly easy for a small child to tip into a toilet and drown. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission:
Toilets are often overlooked as a drowning hazard in the home. The typical scenario involves a child under 3-years-old falling headfirst into the toilet.
Avoiding this problem is as simple as keeping the toilet seat down and keeping the bathroom door closed.
Steps you can take
- Keep the toilet seat down at all times
- NEVER allow children to play in the bathroom
- Keep the bathroom door closed at all times
- Consider purchasing a toilet seat latch
