Utah Man, 22, Regulated To Death
Dave Killion — March 27, 2013
“SALT LAKE CITY — A 22-year-old man was killed trying to swing through the opening of a 33-meter-tall sandstone arch in a stunt made so popular on YouTube that state authorities recently banned the daredevil activity by commercial outfitters.” (Emphasis mine, link)
Of course, nobody made this young man jump, but if the state hadn’t made it criminal for him to engage a commercial outfitter, what do you think the chances are that the world would have one less grieving mother?
