Infant strangles on ribbon holding pacifier around his neck
A 1 year old male was found dead in his playpen, strangled from his own weight by a ribbon attached to a pacifier that had caught on a protuberance of the playpen. The ribboned pacifier, around his neck, apparently caught and held when the child attempted to sit-down or fell, within the playpen.
Since 1986, there have been reports of at least 34 children under 2 years old who have strangled on cords or ribbons around their necks.
Never tie pacifiers or other items around your child's neck.
