Re: Young Sisters Die in Freak Farm Accident

What a tragic accident.

"So far in 2015, there have been seven Canadians killed due to asphyxia on farms, including four children – that's according to statistics from the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association.

Blahey said the increase in asphyxia deaths on farms is due in part to the increase in grain being handled recently and because of improved reporting of incidents in the industry.

"Certainly, the first thing that went through my mind is how tragic, how difficult for the family and the community to lose three people like that," he said.

It's common for people to think of farms or harvesting areas as play areas – but they're not, Blahey said.

"Last fall, the Rick Mercer Report did a wonderful piece on harvesting, focusing on agriculture and the industry and harvesting grain. Unfortunately, the show ended with Rick Mercer and a couple of the grandchildren of the farmer hosting the show rolling around in a pile of grain," he said.

"Grain is not a play area. It's a commodity that acts like quick sand. It acts like a fluid as soon as it starts to move, and the hazards associated with being trapped in grain are very critical."

The University of Manitoba has introduced a new agriculture safety course that Blahey said is seeing a huge response, but families need to have conversations with their kids about staying safe on farms."

Sounds like the parents of farm kids need to be a bit more responsible. It's not a playground.

As for the go fund me page...this is one of my pet peeves. Parents who have children, but do not get life insurance on their kids. Then, when something happens, they reach out to everyone else for financial assistance to help bury them.

Buying a whole life insurance after a child is born is the best gift you can give them. The cost will never be less and underwriting is simple at that age. I bought Jake a policy after he was born and it allows him to purchase more coverage as he gets older, with no medical questions asked. Which as we all know, one medical issue and your monthly quotes can sky rocket.

After he turns 18, his coverage will double automatically, while keeping the same low premium I am paying now. At 18 he can get the cash value to put towards college, while still keeping the policy intact. He can cash it out at anytime in his life, for the entire value, but I will encourage him to keep paying on it, because once he is an adult and has a family, having life insurance is a must. It's a win win.

Good Mom! He is really going to appreciate and thank you for that later on.

Re: Young Sisters Die in Freak Farm Accident

Farming people should have known the dangers and taken adequate precautions.

This type of thing has been happening as long as large scale farming has been around.

Enough for responsible people to be aware of the danger.



Though they do bear a lot of responsibility for it, I am still sorry for the family's loss.

It's a tool developed by chris: whenever you want to add something to the OP you can contribute to it; when the Thread Starter accepts the contribution, the script adds the content to the OP and creates automatically a new post like that. So no, i can't.

My parents taught me well and some of their advice I actually listened to!
