PMID:  10699525     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Airbag-induced injury fatality is increasing in frequency. We present the case of a 6-year-old passenger who sustained a fatal atlanto-occipital dislocation associated with airbag deployment in a low-speed motor vehicle crash. The current literature regarding airbag fatalities and methods to ameliorate airbag-induced injury are reviewed.
