April 15, 2013
The Leader Herald

Child abuse is a major problem and Shaken Baby Syndrome is one of the most dangerous and tragic forms of abuse. SBS happens when a caregiver violently shakes a baby or young child, causing brain injuries, cerebral palsy, blindness, hearing loss, learning and behavior problems, seizures, paralysis and death. Between 1,000 and 3,000 children in the United States suffer from SBS each year. Just a few seconds of shaking can result in lifelong injury or death.
