Ikea will pay $50million (£40.5million) to the parents of three toddlers who were killed when the company's now recalled Malm dressers toppled onto them.
'We would never want other parents to have to experience what we have been forced to endure,' said Janet McGee of Apple Valley, Minnesota, whose 22-month-old son Ted died after a Malm dresser fell on him in February.
'This has been a tragic, heartbreaking season for us and our family, and no amount of money will make up for the loss of our sweet little boy,' she told Philly.com.
