Over time, the rubber in the radiator hoses becomes brittle causing it to crack very easily. As the hot radiator coolant surges through the hoses under pressure, it makes it very easy for the hoses to break. (most of the time in the hardest places to find) The solution to finding the hole would be to take a garden hose, and put it in the radiator top, run it so the radiator won't run out of fluid and try to assess where the water/coolant mixture is seeping from. Either have a garage fix it, or purchase a new hose and replace.

Is an antifreeze leak dangerous?

No. It can result in damage to the engine if you loose all of your coolant. I have damaged an Alternator by coolant spraying on it. There is some risk if you try to work on the radiator or remove the cap when the engine is HOT. The fluid can spray on you can cause burns. Antifreeze is not harmful to you if you spill it on you. ( cats and dogs are attracted to antifreeze and could possibly kill them if they drink it )
