Very sad news and my condolences to friends and family.

Seems like a fluke accident, and fluke accidents are hard to anticipate and prevent by their very nature.

I agree the comment section on the linked story does have some gross and insensitive posts, but also I read at least a handful of respectful ones, but it's unfortunately the low standard set by internet trolls ! ( Just ignore the comment section and don't even bother reading them )

Obviously any comments here should remain respectful and also not wade into too much speculation about what when wrong.

Safety suggestions might be better discussed in a general new Topic not directly related to this very unfortunate accidental death, and only after a decent interval of time.

But as a related community people adding their condolences seems like a good thing to do, I think.
