Child Safety

Letters to the Editor, January 28, 2013

China claims sovereignty over the South China Sea.

Any fair-minded person viewing China's nine-dash line, that skirts the entire area of sea outside the 12-nautical-mile maritime territory of the Philippines, Vietnam, Brunei, and Malaysia, would come to the conclusion that it marks a bizarre and assertive attempt to grab territory.

Alarming reaction to child reports

Hong Kong is such a safe city that even the merest suggestion that matters are not as usual drives parents into a frenzy. That is what seems to have happened after three young boys, the eldest in Primary Three, told parents that a stranger had approached them as they were leaving school and asked if they wanted to go with him to have tea. They said no and he went away.

Baby carrier

Cybex is a German company that designs children's car seats, pushchairs and baby carriers whose 'over-average safety and quality and unmistakable design join forces with intelligent functionality'. With an assertion like that, I expected its Callisto 3-in-1 system to be the BMW of baby transport systems.

Safety concern for all

A million Maclaren strollers have been voluntarily recalled in the United States, but no recall has been issued in Hong Kong. This is unacceptable.

The recall was made after reports that 12 children had their fingertips cut off by the stroller's hinge. The hinge mechanism of the single and double umbrella-fold strollers was manufactured on the mainland.
