Terrible story, lucky so few were killed.

All fair & carnival type constructs make me nervous, you never know when they are suspect. Not a very good system of over sight & inspection either.

Horrible. Absolutely horrible. Cannot believe these things still happen in 2011. It's structural engineering, people. It's important.

So sad. Shouldn't have had to happen.

Good holy Christ.

And take a look at the "Related Story" right under that one - about the guy decapitated by his own do-it yourself hovercraft.

No news is good news.

his family and friends witnessed the entire scene.

I appreciate the guys ability to DIY such a project, but damn to not think about a cage around the blades?
