What’s more dangerous: A playground jungle gym or your office chair? When it comes to fatal falls, one out of every 3,700 falls from a piece of playground equipment results in death. But you’re 85 times MORE likely to fall to your death from a chair. That’s according to “The Book of Odds.” It’s because people falling off their chairs are usually older, and a broken hip at an older age is more likely to result in death than a child breaking a bone falling from a jungle gym.
