My DP is a very blokey bloke. He loves his 4wd'ing and has driven up to Cape York and across the Simpson Desert. His response was "he's a phuk1ng idiot" and I would have to agree.
Generally speaking there are 2 variables when it comes to a risk assessment, probability and impact. Whilst the probability might be very low, the impact could be catastrophic so it is really worth the risk? Think about not ever getting to hold your child ever again. Think about never hearing them cry and longing to hear them cry once more. What if they are injured to the point where they never recover and are disabled for the rest of their life? How would you feel looking at your child ever day knowing that your child is in this state because of your negligence and stupidity. Could you really live with yourself?
