Every year approximately 120,000 PEOPLE DIE FROM ACCIDENTS. Here’s some of that breakdown, according to 2006 data from the CDC:
- 2/3 of those people (about 80,000) are either poisoned or in car accidents
- 43 die from hot tap water
- 6 die from their pajamas catching on fire
- 120 die as the rider of an animal vehicle
And the most common, yet still unusual, reported way to die from an accident is falling from house furniture, with 899.
