I asked myself is this event needed to happen, with Christian over tones.

I presume God, is all knowing. I'm guessing that each start of a new life also has and end date. Yet hard to explain air plane crashes where 150+ people lives are snuffed out.

Did this out door person fail to heed basic survival 101? "A" Avoid all situations where injury/death has a strong out come By being 'well aware of ones surroundings.' Look for options.

Take a look at the picture of the site, sheer drop while very little land mass to balance upon..

Any thought's on this news story?





A hiker tried to grab a friend’s hat – then fell 400 feet to his death, officials say

Miami Herald, By Scott Berson- April 04, 2018 12:35 PM

An Easter morning hike through the mountains of Hawaii went from idyllic to tragic when 24-year-old Nathan Stowell plunged from the trail to his death while trying to help a friend, KHON reported.

Hiker Nathan Stowell falls to death trying to retrieve hat in Hawaii | Miami Herald


Quote:
“Kid’s hat blew off and he told the kid, ‘Don’t get the hat. Let me get it,’ because Nathan felt he had better balance, and he fell 400 feet to his death,” Keener told the station.

“He’s just an absolute amazing human being. We are just blessed to have him in our lives as long as we had him.”

Guy breaks into escape room and then can't escape
evidently there are these game rooms where you can try to solve the puzzles to escape. kinda sounds like some video games I've played only with real people.
He was trying to rob the business and once inside managed to knock over some crates as he opened another door...

He ended up having to call 911 and Northwest Escape Experience now brags their rooms have been tested by real burglars.

Early this year, some Boeing employees on the airfield decided to steal a life raft from one of the 747s. They were successful in getting it out of the plane and home. Shortly after they took it for a float on the river, they noticed a Coast Guard helicopter coming toward them. It turned out that the chopper was homing in on the emergency locator beacon that activated when the raft was inflated.
They are no longer employed at Boeing.
Here's your sign, guys. Don't get it wet.
