Video Clips - Portable Cribs and Play Yards

The following video clips show how the top rails (top rail hinges must be turned to set up the cribs and play yards) of four recalled Portable Cribs and Play Yards can collapse, entrapping children and suffocating them. Thirteen children have died from suffocation in collapsed play yards and portable cribs manufactured by various firms. Current production play yards have top rails that automatically lock into place when the play yards are fully set up. The clips (which require an mpeg viewer) may take between one and ten minutes to download depending on the speed of your Internet connection. More information can be found in the Press Release on this topic.
