Make sure your TV is securely wall-mounted or place it on a sturdy TV stand anchored to the wall, using straps designed to prevent a tip-over accident.
Anchor straps sell for between $10 and $20 at retailers including Amazon.com, a small price to pay to prevent a big tragedy.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission also issued a recall alert for bed rails made by Hot Mom that could entrap or suffocate young children. The Hot Mom Boom09 model under recall has a plastic perimeter and two mesh centers, and was sold exclusively at Amazon.com, according to the commission.
No injuries have been reported, but don’t use the bed rails and contact Hot Mom at 855-723-3893 or return them and get your money back.
