MONDAY, April 16 (HealthDay News) -- Accidental deaths among children and adolescents have dropped 30 percent since 2000 but still remain the number-one killer of children and teens, according to new statistics released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Monday.

Deaths from poisoning in teens aged 15 to 19 almost doubled during the decade, mostly a result of more prescription drug overdoses, the CDC added.
