What is the percentage of dying from a broken neck?
I want to know how slim the chance is of living if you break your neck.
Among all victims of broken neck, three out of ten die, this makes it thirty percent. A broken neck is fatal because the bone is extensive to the brain and spinal cord. Find more details at http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=543285.
Well if you only break the bone you wont die. You could easily die if you break or tear the spinal cord.
3/10 or 30/100, or 30 percent.
