Re: Some questions on this ND tragedy
I don't think anyone is giving Kelly a pass. Is the ND staff at fault for not taking the decision out of the kid's hands? Absolutely, I don't think anyone is arguing against that. At the same time the kid shouldn't have gone up there, he knew it was dangerous and he should have raised his concerns with his immediate supervisor. He clearly knew how dangerous it was and should have realized his life was worth risking his job, not the other way around. In my mind that doesn't take the blame away from ND, but the kid still should have said something.
EDIT: Now if the kid did raise his concern and they still told him to go up there, then that's really bad. Most likely he just went up the tower without being told because that's what he does everyday. Yes, someone at ND should have been thinking enough to stop him from going up there, clearly Tressell was thinking about it.
