Fatal Luge Crash Video and Availability

Fatal luge crash video and amazing response to video.  The fatal luge crash video is still very popular a day after the 21 year old Georgian luger crashed during a practice run prior to the start of the Vancouver winter games.  The fatal luge crash video is among the most viral videos on the internet as many want answers as to why the young guy had to die.

Olympic officials have ruled that the fatal crash was caused by human error rather than the actual track as previously believed. The luger was coming out of the next to last turn late and didnt compensate before the next curve.  He lost control of his sled traveling at nearly 90 miles per hour, and crashed in to an unpadded pole.

Still yet, there are those that think that the Whistler track is far too complex for the competition, and is very dangerous.  There were fears of accidents before the fatal luge crash that happened on Friday.

Everyone is keeping their fingers crossed that this is the last accident on the track. If it happens again, it will really make the Olympic committee look bad after saying that the death was “human error.”

      That was such a horrific crash. My heart goes out to his family members and the nation of Georgia.

      If an athlete makes a mistake he or she shouldnt have to be placed in danger. Safety is still the most important factor that we should be paying attention to before we let the worlds best come and compete. To say it was human error is correct, but does it make it right for a human to die for his or her error?

      there should have been a safety net or padding on the beams poor safety on the track designer and the whole olympic organization

      Forget the padding and pole…why would there be a row of steel poles along side this track? There are fences along the race tracks at NASCAR, plexi glass around the ice at hockey…this is why there are public safety rules around how close a ‘pole’ can be to a road. This needs to be changed. I suppose no one figured someone would be ejected from a luge and hurled into one of those poles sitting inches from the edge of the track at 90 mph. Very bad.

      • CW says:

        Correct. Strategic placement of simple plywood over those poles and he would have walked away. The track design should not have ANY POLES anywhere in the trajectory path of a luger out of control. It doesn’t take a genius to understand that. This was a preventable tragedy if there ever was one.

      I view it as an occupational hazard. Ski jumpers can die an awful death as well. And, unlike this poor guy, in a failed jump, they have time to think about on the way to the ground. Ouch! Are they supposed to put up nets under the jumps? No, its a risk of the sport. I do think however that the olymic commission has no integrity in that they state it was the riders inability to compensate. Have some class IOC! You screwed up and had no method of helping protect these athletes!

      yes its sad and many things could have been done to TRY and prevented this from happening but accidents happen. and its no ones fault.
