Across the country, falls are the leading cause of injury-related death for people 65 or older.
Chances are, someone you know has taken a dangerous tumble. In San Diego County alone, an average of 19 seniors (people over the age of 75) a day have falls so serious they require help from paramedics. And every single day in California, two seniors die from fall-related injuries.
More then 60 percent of all falls take place in the home. But many of these can be prevented through basic precautions.
