TSB says aircraft child restraint system needed
from The Canadian Press via MetroNews Canada
The Transportation Safety Board wants specially designed seatbelts to be mandatory for babies and children on commercial flights to prevent them from "becoming projectiles" or dying in otherwise "survivable" accidents. The recommendation to Transport Canada stems from an investigation into a 2012 plane crash in Sanikiluaq, Nunavut, which claimed the life of six-month-old Isaac Appaqaq, who was not restrained by any device or seatbelt. Kathy Fox, chairwoman of the transportation board, said a parent's arms aren't enough to protect a child during severe turbulence or a crash.
