11 fatal accidents a week in the home

The Herald reports:

An average of 11 people died each week from accidents in their homes in the year to the end of June – an annual total of 573. That compares with the road toll last year of 366.

Of course people spend more time at home than driving, but that figure seems incredibly high.

The article gives a breakdown of total accidents in the home, but not of fatal accidents. I would be fascinated to see a breakdown of the almost 600 fatal home accidents.
