In 2012, 23 individuals died in accidents in Iceland, up by three from 2011. Most of these people, or ten, were killed in traffic accidents. Accidents at home and during recreation numbered six, up from two in 2011.
Most of the fatal accidents occurred in March and December, five each month, as stated in a press release from ICE-SAR. Six Icelanders died abroad and were excluded from the statistics.
Overall, the number of fatal accidents has dropped consistently in the past decade. In 2003, 36 individuals died in accidents and 50 in 2006.
The decrease is attributed to preventive measures and information provided by ICE-SAR. The association would like to express its condolences to those who have lost loved ones in 2012.
