In the aftermath of the Consumer Product Safety Commission's recalls of a variety of blinds and roller-shades (http://www.maryland-law.com/library/blinds-recalled-for-strangulation-risks-for-children.cfm ) the Baltimore Sun reports the tragic tale of a Gaithersburg child strangling in the cords of window blinds at his home. http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/bal-md.blind11nov13,0,301344.story

The extent of the health risk seemed underplayed in the C.P.S.C. recalls and the Sun article brings home the risk and the tragedy.

The C.P.S.C. has recalled millions of shades and blinds in recent years and suggests that one child is killed every month by them.
