Sledding is a fun wintertime activity for families, however those exhilarating slides down neighborhood hills send more than 20,000 children to emergency rooms each year, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. “When sledding, children should wear a helmet, go down the hill feet first, not face first, dress warm, avoid hills with trees and avoid sledding at night,” said Dennis Mao, M.D, clinical assistant professor of emergency medicine.
