Debbie Deming: on Furniture Tipping
moving the podcast – interview from May 20, 2014
Episode 26. Debbie and I talk about the startlingly high number of children who are killed or injured by furniture tipping over on them. Debbie shares her personal story of loss, and talks about the organization she and her husband founded to prevent other people from losing the children they love.
“It just didn’t feel right to live with that knowledge and let other parents who don’t know the dangers just go about their life, and just hope that they’re not the next ones.”
