The Royal Show Tragedy

Every year we have The Royal Adelaide show its normally for one week but we were celebrating 150 years so it was on for two weeks.

Last Friday an eight year girl died while riding on a very scary ride that goes around really fast and goes up and down, you are strapped in a harness so you cant fall out.

The little girl wanted to go on this ride so her mother brought her a ticket the guy that was selling the ticket asked if she was tall enough to on the ride, and asked how old so was.  The mother lied to the guy and said that she was 14 year old, and because the girl was wearing high hill shoe she was just tall enough to go on the ride.  So just so we are all on the same page the girl she very skinny......

So when the ride got really fast the girl come out of her harness and was hanging on with her body flying like a rag doll in the air, until she could n hold on any more and flow in the air about ten feet high and drop to the ground.  She was barely breathing on the way to the hospital she died.....

My friends daughter saw it all and saw the little girl just barely breathing on the ground and she has to live with the image for the rest of her life.

I think of that girls mother who lied to get her on the ride, and what she would be going through at this time, i don't think she will ever for give herself for lying.

I would rather disappoint my daughter and say no to going on such a ride and have her with me then lying and not having her.
