Hug your kids a little harder today

Carnivals, water and amusement parks are a source of fear for many parents. We see the big, tall slides and rides that our children want to ride, and often get afraid that something bad could happen, but usually push those intuitions aside because we remind ourselves that if there really was danger or risk involved, the rides probably wouldn’t exist in the first place. Well, this isn’t always the case.

An incident occurred over the weekend in Kansas, which will make you rethink letting your beloved embark on that next ride.
