[APK-News]Parkour Investigated in Teen's Death

rssIcon.gif Parkour Investigated in Teen's Death

We are sad to report that a Sacramento teen suffered a fatal fall from an 8 story parking garage. We send our deepest condolences to the family and friends. News reports have stated that Parkour is being Investigated as a possible cause. We want to remind evereyone that safety and progression are ingrained in Parkour training and there is never any reason to practice that high up, it is dangerous and doesn't aid your training in any way. Every parkour community stresses the importance of eliminating risky behavior. If you need a reminder, you should read our What is Parkour definition (whatisparkour) that discusses the importance of safety. You can also read about the right way to get started with parkour in our Getting Started (content/view/3972) section.

You can read the story here (http://www.kcra.com/news/21503335/detail.html), or comment in the American Parkour (smf/index.php/topic,21881) thread or the San Francisco Parkour (http://www.sfparkour.com/forum/showthread.php?p=47511) thread. San Francisco Parkour asks everyone not to contact the media about this and to give the grieving family the space they need. The death of a teenager is always tragedy, so let's avoid making this more painful for the family.
