(KGTV) - Rady Children's Hospital treats two to three kids per week who were injured falling out of a window during summer months.

And nationwide, more than 4,000 children are treated in emergency rooms each year due to falling out of an open window.

There are some steps you can take to keep your kids safe.

  • Never leave furniture near a window because little ones love to climb and explore.
  • Never depend on window screens to stop your child from falling out.
  • Install window guards.
