Video: Nodar Kumaritashvili luge tragedy video discontinued by NBC, but you can still see the CBS Luge tragedy video here.Â After the controversy surrounding Nodar Kumaritashvili’s death, NBC has decided to drop the video showing him fly through the air to his death. The network made the decision after multiple complaints about the appropriateness of the luge tragedy video.
Still yet, the video can be seen.Â There are ethical questions if this is a good thing or not.Â After all, Nodar’s father has said that he doesn’t want to see the video and has avoided news reports of his son’s death.
No parent would ever want to see their child go through this type of incident – especially when it leads to their death.
Nodar Komaritashvili was late coming out of the 15th turn and failed to compensate.Â As a result, he lost control of his sled during the 16th turn, which wouldn’t have been as tragic except for his high rate of speed coupled with his body mass not being enough to control the g force surrounding him threw him through the air.Â He hit a steel pole and then the ground.Â Although CPR was performed, he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Because of the Nodar Kumaritashvili luge tragedy, the Olympic committee shortened the staring point of the Whistler track and made adjustments to the 16th turn.Â No matter what we lost a brave and talented athlete Friday.
