Kansas City, Kansas Verrückt Decapitation Inspires Amusement Park Safety Debate



Follow-up reporting on safety that still skirt around the issue involving some poor kid's head being ripped off . . . Which is kinda the point of extreme precautions and safety rules . . .

KCUR: Death On Verrückt Sparks National Debate About Regulations At Amusement Parks


"It’s not easy to gauge exactly how safe amusement parks and water parks are. The industry cites data that shows amusement ride injury rates to be very low and improving. But those numbers come from a self-selected group of amusement parks who provide them voluntarily for an industry-sponsored survey compiled by the National Safety Council."

You decide . . .

The risk is the thrill that thrill seekers seek. Sometimes, risk takers die. Duh! Eskimos don't walk on thin ice. They think it's insulting God.

How can you look at that thing & think it's safe? Why would you let a child ride it?

Is the operator responsible? Yes, & so is the father.

A mother would have told the child, "NO".

Didn't superdavr already cover all this in a story? Most amusement rides are accidents looking for a reason to happen.
