Sister in law had a coworker slip on the ice, fell backwards, hit head, died.

I've known it to happen. I usually go flat on my back on solid ice a couple of times a winter. Neck muscle strength, range of motion, something keeps me from bouncing my head off the ice.

BTW, tell me I'm going to get hit by a car, or it's a narrow street with sharp granite curbs, and I'll take a helmet.

A lot of these statistics can get misinterpreted pretty easily. If we look at automobile safety, we see that current vehicles are safer than the ones in the 1970's. But if we go back further to see how many automobile fatalities there were in the 1870's or 1770's than the fatalities are zero since there were no automobiles. Hence, modern cars are totally unsafe! It's proven statistically!
