If a person is electrocuted, it is important that they receive immediate medical help. While not all electrocutions result in life-long injuries or acute wounds, there is always a potential for lasting symptoms and side effects.
Crashes happen every day. Sometimes, they're a result of weather or malfunctions in vehicles. Other times, they're a result of a person's poor decisions and mistakes on the roads.
Each year, the nonprofit World Against Toys Causing Harm, Inc. (W.A.T.C.H.) releases a list of holiday toys that could harm children. The hazards of each toy are generally quite straightforward, such as small parts that could be swallowed or projectiles that could cause eye injuries. Nevertheless, not all of the toys are subject to recall.
