Pediatric Health Experts Urge Kids To Practice Safe Sledding
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Our recent snow has a lot of kids ready to jump on their sleds, but a group of pediatric experts wants parents to hear its safety alert.
Before kids head out for sledding, make sure they protect their heads by wearing a helmet.
A medical review by Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare found that nearly one-third of all sledding-related emergency department visits were because of head injuries. The sledding injuries were similar to skiing and snowboarding falls.
