From the infographic below.
- “Odds of dying while skydiving in the US: 1 in 101,083”
- “Dance parties: 1 in 100,000 chance of dying”
Wonder what the BCPA would make of this, since they recklessly combine both Skydiving and parties on a regular basis (how extreme).
Seriously though, this nicely depicts that many things have worse odds than skydiving (although comparisons like this should be taken with a pinch of salt). However, base jumping (which is not the same thing as skydiving) seems to be the most dangerous by far (1 in 60).
