According to The U.S.National Safety Council's data on accidents in 1,307 people died from falling down the stairs in 2000. An American citizen's lifetime odds of dying in this way were calculated as 1 in 2,739. Yesterday I discovered that one of my favourite singers, Sandy Denny died this way.
Of course none of this has anything to do with Card 6 (shown above) in the current series of woodcuts. See my earlier post for a different angle.
