Most Common Way Idahoans Get Hurt Will Take Your Breath Away – Really
Leave it to us in Idaho to find a common way to get injured that is completely uncommon. This will literally take your breath away.
As for me, I'm suddenly in the mood to hear that song from Top Gun. No idea why.
This list was calculated by Amino, which is basically a website that will help you locate doctors and services along with insurance options. The rankings are based on open insurance claims by injury. According to them, Idaho's most common way to get hurt is suffocation. Yes, that's right. Suffocation. Please take a deep breath now.
The weird part of their list to me is it also lists the most common physical injuries, which for Idaho is "open wounds". Does this mean we're doing stupid things with plastic bags while we're at the firing range? We can only guess.
Looking at the most common claim for states like North Dakota, it's my belief that they're suffering so many spine dislocations because people are literally breaking their necks trying to get out of that state.
