How many children die each year from bicycle accidents?
Deaths from Bicycle Accidents DEATHS AND INJURIES In 1995, more than 250 children ages 14 and under died in bicycle-related crashes. Motor vehicles were involved in 230 of these deaths. In 1996, more than 350,000 children ages 14 and under were treated in hospital emergency rooms for bicycle-related injuries. It is estimated that collisions with motor vehicles account for 90 percent of all bicycle-related deaths and 10 percent of all nonfatal bicycle-related injuries. Collision with a motor vehicle increases the risk of death, severity of injury, and the probability of sustaining a head injury. More than 40 percent of all head injury-related deaths and approximately three-fourths of head injuries occur among children ages 14 and under. Younger children suffer a higher proportion of head injuries than older children. WHEN AND WHERE BICYCLE DEATHS AND INJURIES OCCUR Children are more likely to die from bicycle crashes at non-intersection locations (66 percent), during the months of May to August (55 percent), and between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. (39 percent). Nearly 60 percent of all childhood bicycle-related deaths occur on minor roads. The typical bicycle/motor vehicle crash occurs within one mile of the bicyclist's home. Children ages 14 and under are more likely to be injured riding in non-daylight hours (e.g., at dawn, dusk or night). The risk of sustaining an injury during non-daylight conditions is nearly four times greater than during the daytime. Among children ages 14 and under, more than 80 percent of bicycle-related fatalities are associated with the bicyclist's behavior. The most common crashes include riding into a street without stopping; turning left or swerving into traffic that is coming from behind; running a stop sign; and riding against the flow of traffic.

There is no set number of deaths per year due to the fact that deaths by horse accidents are unpredictable.

I can only give you an approximate number.. CDC reports 853,000 children deaths, but this is not exclusively Africa. Africa may account for 80 to 90% of the deaths, so approximately 700,000 children deaths. This seems consistent with the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation estimate of 2000 deaths per… day.. It is not clear to me if malaria is on the rise or decline in Africa. As so often the case, one question raises another one.. See related links. ( Full Answer )

No way to know. Not all are reported and those that are aren't always accidents
I am not aware of many incidents resulting in death. The mostdanger one has in most airsoft arenas is breaking something. Whenrunning and jump and hiding it is known for some people to trip andbreak a limb. A few people have been hit in the teeth with a bb.being hit in the eyes, though not common, c…an happen. Death mayonly result if someone is trips and hits their head on concrete orsomething of that manor. Everyone under the age of 18 MUST wearfull seal eyegoggles to protect their eyes. this means that no bb'scan enter the goggles. ( Full Answer )

Horses are gentle creatures and hardly hurt anyone, however something wrong could happen. About 1,000. If a horse is brought up well then a horse would never hurt anyone. I've been around horses all my life and only got hurt by a rescue horse (because people would hurt him he was frightened).

GOK- God Only Knows. You would have to factor in suspicious automobile and other accidents, as in the US. I never thought about it that way. Full-blast Italian alcoholics are rare, but problem drinkers can occur anywhere. Tragically, many clergymen have problems with liquid fire.
There is no comprehensive database of the number of accidents specifically with automotive lifts. However the overall number of deaths each year is quite small, and most accidents in auto garages are with smaller tools.
It is said that about 800 people die each year from bicycle accidents. The majority of these accidents are involving children under 18 and it is statistically proven that more males happen to get into bicycle accidents.
Every day about 3000 people die in automobile accidents and 3/4 of them are babies.
there's 365 days a year (not including leap years) and there a 4 babies born EVERY second around the world
Well in 2008, 1.5 million died from diseases (completely preventable by vaccines) according to the WHO . Each year, about 1 million babies will also die partly from being born too soon - which is also preventable . So when Peter Singer says just 27 000 children per day from preventable dis…eases (in his book, the Life You Can Save ), that would be very conservative. Although that is still 18 preventable deaths in the time it took to read this answer (about 1 minute). Maybe that is why Singer says - don't make the whole thing your problem, but make it is important to make it a little bit your problem. ___________ See links below for references ( Full Answer )

Chris,Its not fair. I was totally tnikhing of writing this post over the last week I think the Linked in VS. Yahoo Answers question is an important one that should be fully developed:Linked in Advantages:a) Expert adviceb) Ability to connect for networking, affiliation, and perhaps sales.I think its… fun when folks ask non-traditional questions related to life, faith, and culture just to spice up the conversation.Yahoo Answers Advantages:a) Offers some degree of advice but the quality and connection level are not comparable (9 vs. 7 level of quality)b) Ability to link build (drop your links as answers)c) Shows up higher in Google (which has advantages for the Answerer)Second Issue: Yahoo Answers Vs. Niche Forum Questions:I think that for Asking questions that niche forums (if you know the best game in town) especially in the social media, blogging, and seo space would generally have all the advantages of Yahoo Answers.Answering questions in Yahoo may work if your target audience is regular folks and you are outsourcing. Answering questions in niche forums may demonstrate your expertise to industry experts if you're looking to get hired. At the end of the day, its probably easier to impress those outside the industry, however.I hope all that makes sense I need to get some sleep.Cheers,Nathan ( Full Answer )
