Parents, be mindful when you put your child into your shopping cart!
A new study finds shopping cart injuries send about 24,000 kids to the emergency room each year or, an average of 66 children each day.
The study looked at U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission data on an estimated 530,000 children under 15 who were injured by shopping carts and treated in a U.S. emergency room from from 1990 through 2011.
Watch the video for more information and safety tips from the researchers.
