The Las Vegas industry has seen a surge in fatalities over the past year, according to data from Fatal Attraction, an industry association.
The number of fatalities has increased from 1,539 last year to 2,097 in the first half of 2018, a 25% increase.
The increase is the highest rate of increase since 2012, when the industry saw a 15% increase, according the data.
“While fatalities have remained relatively stable over the last few years, the increase in fatalities reflects the high volume of attraction-related injuries,” the association said.
“This trend is likely to continue.”
Fatal Attraction has posted a list of the five most common types of injuries that occur during the attraction-caused injuries.
These include injuries related to the physical interaction of people and things with a body part or object, the physical separation of bodies or parts, or the use of a dangerous object.
It also points to an increasing number of people getting involved in accidents that are caused by the safety of the attraction.
“This year, fatalities related to attractions were the most common injury type reported, followed by falls, accidents that occur on the premises, and fatalities in the vehicle that causes the accident,” the data said.
The number of incidents related to accidents is also on the rise, with 8,927 incidents reported in the second half of 2017 compared to 7,852 in the same period in 2018.
