Right, and I probably shouldn't let my kids cross the street for fear of being struck by a car. It's tragic. It's an accident plain and simple. You're ridiculous.
Relax bro it was just my opinion, let your kids do all they want. I have 3 kids as well, two of them about the same age of the girl who died. My point was that i wouldn't intentionally bring my kids in a possible hazardous terrain, kids like to play and run around and don't pay attention to their surroundings.
Hey, maybe next time you go to Everest, don't forget to take your kids with you. Just tell them to be careful when they cross the khumbu Icefall, the seracs are kinda unstable there.
Anyways a quick update to the story:
Lions Bay mayor Karl Buhr said the girl, her mother and an older sibling were part of a group of 20 people hiking on Unnecessary Mountain when tragedy struck.
“There was a group of kids in the group that walked across a boulder, which gave way when the last kid walked across,” said Buhr.
The girl was struck by rocks and boulders and buried in the debris in the ensuing slide.
“It looked like a whole chunk of it gave away while she was standing on it because it was waterlogged, presumably,” said Martin Colwell, search manager for Lions Bay Search and Rescue Society, which received a call about the accident around 10:15 a.m.
