Poor children more prone to fatal injuries, Israeli study says
The chance of a poor child dying of an injury is twice that of a middle-class child and 2.5 times that of an upper-class child.
The accidental death rate of children in poorer locations is far higher than that in middle-class or wealthy communities, according to data collated by Beterem - Safe Kids in Israel on child mortality in 2013.
