Deadly Falls

News

Older adults are dying from falling.

Dutch researchers studied national vital statistics data from 2000 through 2016.

In 2000 over 8,600 adults over the age of 75 died following a fall.

But in 2016 that number increased to over 25,000!

When it comes to gender, men were more likely to suffer a fatal fall.

Experts say the reasons for the increases are unknown at this time.
