The Consumer Product Safety Commission reported that over 30 children died as a result of suffocation or strangulation related to drop side cribs. These drop side cribs make it easier for adults and caregivers to get a child into and out of a crib. Unfortunately, the design of some of these cribs leads to serious personal injuries and in some cases wrongful death.
