Children's Bed Manufacturer Questioned After Tragic Death Of Seven-Month-Old Baby
A bed manufacturer is being questioned after a seven-month-old baby from North Yorkshire, England died. Police officials have already issued a safety warning to stop using PlayTime beds. The "potential safety risks" have been identified across their range - from design and manufacture to the way they are assembled.
Bed Manufacturer PlayTime Beds Ceased Trading Last Month
PlayTime beds also issued a statement saying that several of its products, which include "children's cots, beds, twin beds", may pose risks to kids including "asphyxiation or strangulation, falling, entrapment or crushing". The safety warning is effective immediately and Playtime Beds Ltd has ceased trading just days after the infant's death on November 3.
After the alert, some owners claimed that they had been informed the beds were not built to UK standards and tots on lower bunks could be crushed. Others also say that Trading Standards warned that if children got their heads trapped between the slats they could be strangled.
One parent, Lisa Marelli, who bought a princess castle bed from PlayTime said on Facebook: "As you can imagine the first thing is to not let me little girl anywhere near the bed as her safety comes first. Then Anger!! as we are all left not knowing what the problem is and with this huge bed not been used. My little girl is now left on her mattress on the floor and is heartbroken."
PlayTime's CEO May Already Be In Question
According to Mirror, the baby was found dead in one of PlayTime's products designed for younger infants. The manufacturer's CEO is said to already be in question. North Yorkshire Police said that they are "running a joint investigation with South Yorkshire Trading Standards" and that "a 35-year-old man, believed to be CEO Craig Williams, has been interviewed" by police.
Playtime Beds of Sheffield has been supplying beds since 2011, Independent reported. The scale of the problem is still unknown, but it is feared that thousands of products have been sold over the years. They specialize in made-to-order beds, like princess beds.
