More Freezing to Death in Sweden

New statistics show that a growing number of people in Sweden are freezing to death during the winters each year.

The annual figure of around a dozen deaths a few decades ago has climbed in recent years to around 60. Most of the victims are either alcoholics or senile patients leaving their homes or hospitals getting caught in freezing weather. And most are aged over 65.
