PR Newswire: When it Comes to Accidental Deaths, United States is Approaching Deadliest Stretch of the Year (PRESS RELEASE). “National Safety Council analysis indicates that more preventable, accidental deaths occur during the two months of July and August than during any other two-month period of the year – a trend that includes drowning, pediatric vehicular heatstroke, pedestrian deaths, natural disasters and gun-related fatalities. Since June is National Safety Month, the Council urges people to use the next few weeks to take inventory of their own safety risks. To help, the Council has added deaths by month – and data around some of the issues influencing these deaths – to its Injury Facts interactive online database of preventable injuries and deaths. While the Council has tracked preventable injury and death data for 98 years, this is the first time NSC has made ‘Hot Car Deaths’ its own category – something the Council does when emerging issues become critically important for the public to understand.”
