News Tech: According to health officials, every 9 minutes a child goes to the ER because they got into medicine, and in Kentucky nearly 1 in 6 of all child deaths and near-deaths are related to ingesting something.

Dr. Howard also says the number of kids who have ingested melatonin has increased more than 500% in recent years.

“And that’s access to multi-vitamins, over the counter prescription medications, Tylenol is a substance that can be dangerous to kids” said Dr. Christina Howard, the Chief of the Pediatric Forensic Medicine Division

And that a big reason for accidental ingestion is that many medications look kid friendly.
