Agreed, I think he said that after that incident he was reviewing their safety procedures. I am not sure he made light of the accident, but I think it highlights the fact that accidents happen and no matter how careful you are you always need to be vigelant. Look at what happened at Scaled composites and they pride themselves on safety.
I guess that this is one of the reasons that we have rules here because accidents do happen. Too bad this guy wasnt following them. I guess he had to learn the hard way.
