Type in "colonoscopy mortality rate" into google and you will find several articles that elaborate on this.  The statistics probably require sub-divisions such as:-

- outright death during the procedure
- when death occurs after perforation during the procedure
- when death occurs to patients who are already seriously ill/hospitalised
etc etc

If you - or a close relative - are contemplating a colonoscopy you should not be afraid to pose this question to the specialist.
