The cribs' drop sides can malfunction, detach, or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop side to fall out of position. This creates a space into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged or entrapped; this can potentially lead to strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear.
