In this item in the “BMJ family highlights” section by Harvey Marcovitch, we wrongly said: “A few children were deliberately restrained in a safety belt so that adults could sleep, work, use drugs, or gamble” (BMJ 2005;330:564, 12 Mar). In fact, according to the original study, the children were restrained in a safety seat, not a belt.
