Thanks for the update Tony. It isn't something that should slip the mind when you have the responsibility of the lives of othersER, returning to the Padstow tragedy, it is now clear from the initial MAIB report that the driver of the RIB was not wearing the kill cord (as I suspected - these devices are pretty fail-safe).
An accident that has killed two, maimed two others, traumatised the kids and was totally preventable. Sadly, a similar fatal accident in the Lake District (father & daughter killed) a few years ago had the same cause. When will people learn? We can teach them all they want, but if they don't take on board what the information is, there is nothing we can do.
in your hands is it, it must have been something that the driver
decided not to do and that is the sad part. Can only hope that others learn from this dreadful tragedy.
