    Default 2 teens dead, 6 more injured at C.O.P. overnight

    EMS confirms two boys in their late teens are dead and six others teens are in hospital after a serious incident overnight at WinSport.

    Paramedics were called to the bobsled or luge track area at around 1:30 Saturday morning and found two teenage boys dead on scene.

    Three of the other teens were taken to hospital in stable, non life-threatening condition while three others suffered minor injuries.

    Police believe at least eight teenagers, all males, entered the property after hours and used a personal sled or toboggan in an attempt to go down the bobsled track and part way down, the group hit a large gate used to separate the bobsled and luge tracks.

    Accorfing to police, because of their injuries, they have not been able to identify many of the victims and, therefore, next of kin have not been notified at this time.

    Investigators are working to determine how the teens entered the property and what led up to the decision to enter the closed track.

    WinSport Canada is cooperating with the investigation, including supplying any CCTV footage that may assist with determining how and why this occurred.

    In a statement, Barry Heck, President/CEO of WinSport says, “On behalf of WinSport, I would like to express our sincerest sympathies to the families of the two deceased. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families.”
    Holy crap! so kids decide to take tobaggans down the bobsled track (i admit that does sound like fun!) but probably smoke into a barrier at some ridiculous speed and get mangled up so badly that police can't identify them...so crazy!

    I can't even call this stupid as we have all probably thought about doing this at some point...

    RIP to all, and sympathies to the families and friends. The parents don't even know yet...that's so rough.

    Just had seen this on the news, I was thinking the same thing in how we have all done stupid shit like this and lucky to come out relatively unscathed.

    I remember when I went for a discover skeleton event, we hit upwards of a 100km/h. I couldn't imagine doing that on a toboggan.

    RIP to those who passed and a speedy recovery to the other 6.

    So how long until a lawsuit is filed against Winsport?

    Making bad choices when you're young is part of growing up. Like all choices however they come with consequences. Very sad to read this article this morning.

    Everything about that reads like a thousand things we'd do when that age. Actions/consequences/blah blah fuck off, poor kids and their families. That could be anyone of us when we were young and if you say it couldn't have been, your loss growing up. But yes, risks have rewards and penalties.

    Exactly. This sounds like something I would have tried, or any number of people I know.

    They were not up to something malicious, or nefarious, this was just supposed to be a fun thrill that went sideways.

    I'm assuming the first two were killed when they hit the gate and the rest plowed into them. They probably didn't do a trial run first and all piled on, bad idea.

    So sad, just kids out messing around, not out to hurt anyone.

    This is really shitty to read. I've always wanted to do this, like others have said, never did I ever think something like this could happen.

    RIP to the families, get well to the surviving kids. We all did dumb shit growing up and always thought we were invincible, this is a wake up call for kids I think.

    RIP to those kids who passed, and those kids that survived are going to have to live with this poor decision for the rest of their lives. A pretty heavy thing at such a young age.

    It sounds like it would have been a fun thing to do, but holy smokes, what a bad decision.

    It sounds like police believe there were 2 more kids with them and are currently looking for them.

    Nailed it.

    I look back at the "death defying" choices I made as a teenager, and am surprised I made it through.
