Safekids director Ann Weaver said Mila's death was tragic. She said the only way to prevent further deaths was to keep pushing the safety message.

"When we run a big campaign and talk about this a lot, the statistics tend to decrease," she said.

"But when it's forgotten for a while, then it starts happening again. What we have to do is continue to keep this in the forefront of people's minds."
