TV injures toddler in Hartford


A toddler remained in critical condition at Connecticut Children's Medical Center Monday afternoon after a television fell and injured him Saturday night.

A 2-year-old boy was injured when a tube-style television fell off a piece of furniture and injured the child. This incident comes as a study released Monday by pediatrics magazine says a child in the United States is hurt by a television every 30 minutes.

Police responded to the call at 341 Garden Street Saturday night and found the young child. The incident remains under investigation, and police say it appears to be accidental.
