I received my copy of AAP News today, and immediately read the lead article, "Inaccurate death reports endanger children" (October). This is a timely and important article, and you obviously spent time researching the issue.

However, I am quoted as saying one SIDS death in a family is "unlikely enough and two is highly unlikely." I am fairly certain that what I actually said was that two SIDS deaths are "unlikely enough and that three are highly unlikely." As quoted, I seem to say that it is unlikely that any child dies from SIDS, which was not my intent. Children do die from SIDS, and I do not want to give anyone the idea that I do not think children die from that syndrome.
