A 15-month-old girl has died in northwest Sydney after apparently becoming tangled in a blind cord.
Emergency services were called to a house in Quakers Hill about 6.25pm (AEDT) on Tuesday after the toddler was found unconscious in her cot.
She was taken to Westmead Hospital in a critical condition and later died.
A post mortem examination will be held to determine the cause of death, but police say initial investigations suggest the child became entangled in a blind cord.
The death is the second such case in NSW within a week after a 16-month-old girl died at a home in Hornsby in Sydney's northwest after becoming tangled in a blind cord which wrapped around her neck last Thursday.
She was in cardiac arrest when emergency services arrived and she died at the scene.
Kidsafe NSW Executive Officer Christine Erskine said parents should be careful about putting furniture near windows and with the type of blind cords they had.
"If you have an old set of blinds make sure that they don't have loops on them so that children can't get tangled up," she told ABC radio on Wednesday.
She said the new standard around blinds requires no loops.
