Dramatic display for Child Abuse Prevention Month

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and Rady Children's Hospital is shining in blue, royal blue, in memory of children who have suffered from neglect. 

In a showing of support, The Chadwick Center for Children and Families set 2,000 pinwheels in a grassy courtyard Wednesday.

“The pinwheels are our attempt to bring attention to the size and the scope of the problem in San Diego County. Over 40,000 children are the center of child abuse investigations, but at least 2,000 some through our doors,” said Charles Wilson the Senior Director at Rady Children's Hospital.

Ten children die each year in San Diego County from abuse or neglect. Advocates say if you see something suspicious, report it, or simply ask the family if they need help.
