In Ohio and other States, children and students enjoy the amenities and sites of state and national parks every day. Unfortunately, many students and children are injured in these parks. Some even die. In Cambridge, Ohio, a college student (Amy Adams) from Muskingum College recently died. She was hiking at a park in eastern Ohio when she fell from a cliff at Hosak’s Cave. She was air lifted to Akron General Hospital where she died. Park officials state that Amy wandered off of a marked trail to get to the top of the cliff.
It is truly sad that a college student with such zest for life and adventure died.
While there is adventure and fun at state and national parks, there are also many dangers. All visitors, adults and children, should pay close attention to warning signs and dangers in these parks.
State and national parks have a duty to keep the parks as safe as possible. Trails and dangerous areas should be clearly marked with appropriate warnings and signage when reasonable and possible.
