Summer is when kids are most likely to fall out of windows, and you may be surprised at how often this does happen. Registered nurse Sandy Nipper is from Legacy Emmanuel Children's Hospital in Portland: “There are about 2-3 window falls happening in the nation a day, and those are just the ones the media are covering." Nipper says parents and caregivers may not know how much little kids with their high energy are drawn to windows. Combine that with the false sense that window screens provide safety, they are actually designed to pop out easily in case of an emergency.
