AB  - AIM: To review media accounts of fatal child unintentional injury events reported
      in leading New Zealand newspapers for their completeness and potential to deliver
      evidence-based injury prevention messages. METHOD: Media accounts of fatal
      unintentional child (0-14 years) injury events in New Zealand's four largest
      newspapers between 2011 and 2015 were reviewed. Variables of interest included:
      date, mechanism of injury and victim details. The article prominence, presence of
      prevention messages and case ascertainment for the two leading causes of death
      (2011 to 2013 only) were evaluated. RESULTS: Two hundred and forty-two media
      accounts detailing 122 fatal child injury events (133 deaths) were located for
      the five-year period. The most common causes of injury were transport-related
      (56%) and drownings (21%). Only 20% (n=49) of accounts included clear prevention 
      messages. Just over 33% of accounts included images and 66% were located within
      the first three pages. Case ascertainment in the media accounts was complete for 
      all transport deaths and all but one drowning. CONCLUSION: The low frequency of
      prevention messages in the media accounts reviewed highlights a missed
      opportunity for the dissemination of prevention messages to the New Zealand
      public. The findings confirm the utility of these accounts as a timely source of 
      fatal child injury information.
