Tianna Mooney hanged in blind cord accident, inquest finds
An 18-month-old girl died after getting her neck tangled in a blind cord, an inquest has heard.
A coroner at North Staffordshire Coroners Court found Tianna Mooney's death was an accident.
The toddler was found unresponsive in her cot at 20:00 BST on 16 June, 2015, at the family home in Victoria Street, Stoke-on-Trent.
A pathologist said she died of "compression of the neck, consistent with hanging".
There have been at least 29 deaths in the UK since 1999 - 17 of which have occurred since 2010 - according to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
Earlier this year, 16-month-old Bronwyn Taylor died at her grandparents' home in Stoke-on-Trent after being strangled by a metal blind cord.
RoSPA has successfully campaigned for the blind industry to manufacture products that are fitted with child safety devices.
