New York City has the third highest rate of child deaths in the country, according to a new report from the New York State Child Advocacy Alliance.
The organization also found that children under the age of 6 were five times more likely to die from suffocation or suffocation by airbag in the stair-height balcony than other residential areas in the city.
The city also has one of the highest rates of respiratory infections in the United States.
And the New Yorkers most commonly found at the top of stair balconies were under 5 years old.
The city also ranked among the top 10 most dangerous places to be in New Jersey.
“Our work shows that children are more likely than other children to die in stair balconys because stair balcony buildings are often the most dangerous place in which to be,” said NCAA Executive Director Marcy A. Zorich in a statement.
The new report comes after the New Jersey Division of Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) recently updated the New Yorker balcony death rate to account for new regulations for stair balconie safety in the state.”
Our findings show that children and families are more vulnerable to airbag impacts, suffocation, and choking in stair-facing balconies than in other residential environments.”
The new report comes after the New Jersey Division of Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) recently updated the New Yorker balcony death rate to account for new regulations for stair balconie safety in the state.
The OSHA also published a report this week that shows that stair-front balconies are now required to have sprinklers on all four sides.
The NCAF has been working to educate the public about the dangers of stair balcony heights for years.
In addition to its own safety efforts, NCAI is an advocacy organization for children and their families.
Its first-ever child safety report, which was released last year, ranked New York among the most unsafe places to live in the world.
