Does this need to happen to Joshua, Kristine and others?

Kristine and Joshua met their sad fate when the snowmobile Joshua was riding hit a peninsula on Lower St. Regis Lake called Peter's Rock.  Although Joshua proved to be intoxicated by post-mortem tests, upon consideration of the circumstances leading to the crash, one can only conclude that adult failings were more to blame than youthful exuberance.  Since Kristine is my daughter, this tragic incident has out of necessity drawn most of my attention.

The details can be found in "The Accident That Did Not Need to Happen" and the associated links.
