    I believe the Gun Facts p 15 has that info you're looking for...

    http://users.erols.com/aglock45/gunfacts.pdf

    Accidental Deaths

    Auto 51%
    Drowning 17%
    Pedestrian 11%
    Fires / burns 11%
    Other 10%
    Suffocation 4%
    Firearms 2%

    Also shows -percentage of ALL child deaths...that is only 1.5%

    trolling WISQARS is always illuminating:

    WISQARSâ„¢
    http://www.cdc.gov/ncipc/wisqars/


    Launched by CDC in March 2000,
    WISQARS™ (pronounced "whiskers") is a powerful, interactive database that allows easy access to injury mortality data that can be used for research and policy decisions. Since its debut, WISQARS™—which stands for Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System—has provided researchers, policy makers, reporters and the public with customized reports about both unintentional and violent injuries. In October 2001, CDC expanded WISQARS™ to include national estimates of nonfatal injuries treated in hospital emergency departments.
