    JJJay,
    it's always a terrible tragedy when a young mother dies leaving her family behind.

    BUT ... An eight month long adventure trip ?

    This family from Austria was out on an inflatable canoe, white water rafting in freezing cold waters in Peru , with a
    4 year old , 2 year old, and 1 year old .

    They had to know that they were taking some risks for ALL of the lives on that canoe , for the "adventure" of it all .

    Yes, it is very sad , but I think the real tragedy was not caused by accident ,
    but by the foolish decission to trust mother nature and to NOT wear a life jacket on ANY boat in unfamiliar water .

    a very sad end to a beautiful trip that could so easily have averted by wearing the correct equipment
