Sustaining injuries is unavoidable among children, thus parents have to be aware of the kind of injuries which can pose serious threat for the lives of their children.
There was a picture of a three-year-old kid with her shirt lifted enough to see a minor bruise across the chest.
The kid had been in a car accident and the bruise appeared from the chest clip on the car seat.
The crucial thing about this photo is the placement of the bruise.
It needs to be exactly where it’s supposed to be for a chest clip.
Lots of parents make a mistake when they strap their children, placing the clipo across their belly area or higher than the chest.
The misplacement can lead to serious injuries in case the child endures some kind of collision.
The photo has gone viral and it should inform parents about such situations as it can save their child’s life.
So, the clip needs to be placed at armpit level between the nipples.
If it is placed lower the kid can have organ damage and internal bleeding, and if it is placed higher the kid can be asphyxiated.
This information has been confirmed by a doctor as well.
