Keeping kids safe in cold weather

Posted: Updated:

(ABC News) - Kids love to play out in the snow, but if they're not dressed properly, it can create a dangerous situation.

Frostbite happens when the skin and outer tissue become frozen.

Some body parts are more susceptible to cold weather than others, including the fingers, ears, toes and tip of the nose, according to Dr. Deb Lonzer with the Cleveland Children's Clinic. It's also important to keep your child's gloves, hat and boots dry in the cold because wet hands and feed can also lead to frostbite.
