Editorial on ride accidents/deaths that EVERYONE should read


Recommended Posts

I'll quote an excerpt from the article...I'm not sure if I should copy the whole thing or not...

 

Yes, when it comes to things such as the annual one to eight deaths each year on amusement park rides, it's easy to feel uneasy. In news stories, three items make a trend. Because all ride accidents make headlines — for instance, the recent death of an 8-year-old boy who had just ridden the Fireball at the annual Ionia Free Fair in Michigan on July 22 — we start to wonder: Are we safe? Should the government do something about deadly rides?

 

You're almost 7x more likely to die from igniting or melting nightwear. You really do learn something new every day.
