3 Shark attacks
People are terrified of sharks—it’s just a fact. But shark attacks are actually pretty unlikely. Each year in the U.S., there are an average of 16 shark attacks, with less than one resulting in a fatality. So instead of shark attacks, what you may want to be careful around is vending machines. These things, on average claim the lives of 2.18 people per year, making snacking dangerous for your waistline and your life. Furthermore, falling coconuts cause about 150 deaths annually, cows kill 20 people a year, and bees are responsible for 100 deaths each year.
