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.
