Help! Is there a video showing...

...what happens to a child if they are buckled into their FF seat with the harness straps under their arms (rather than on their shoulder)? If not is there a good article or some info about what could happen in an accident with a child buckled in that way?

I believe their are videos showing what happens when you tuck the seat belt behind your arm, or behind your back, maybe those would help?

I was going to say that Judi posted an awesome thread with different types of misuse, but I don't think that was in there. Looks like it already been found and confirmed. That would have been the most likely place. What about demonstrating with a doll. Just showing how easy it would be to pull the doll out might make it click what would happen to a child under crash forces.
