Older people who suffer a hip fracture face a much higher risk of death soon after the injury, but the risk persists over the longer term, a large study indicates.

Researchers found that the risk of death among people over 60 nearly tripled during the first year following a hip fracture.

However, hip fractures were also still linked to a nearly twofold increased risk of dying eight years or more after the
