To the group:
Apologies for being lazy and not doing the lit-search first, but are any of
you aware of data that describes injuries in children in car seats?
Specifically, are there any reports that state that the well-appearing child
in an intact car seat runs any risk of occult injury?
How about any anecdotal reports? I've never seen any, yet I have re-mobilized
many, many kids brought in taped into the car seat, which was itself rolled in
usually alongside mom. Do any of you get films based on mechanism if there is
no apparent sign of injury?
