    Condolences to the Family of The young Lady. Guess CDC will have to get the trucks to use Plywood right around the trucks as they do now just over the back wheels. Not sure how we can stop Revelers, who would have consumed some sort of alcohol from dancing too close to the trucks. Have to protect them from themselves!!!

  3. Sincere condolences to the family and friends of Camillia. May she rest in sweet perfect peace.

    CONDOLENCES ARE IN ORDER. REALITY CHECK, WAKE UP CALL.STOP THE MADNESS, STOP GLORIFYING THE FORCES OF DARKNESS,IT WILL GET WORST

  6. This is such a tragedy. Condolences to the relatives of this child. Guess it definitely have to consider cordoning off trucks during all of these types of events. Support Ms Hadaway’s recommendation above. Safety measures at all public events have always to be undertaken. Sadly it takes tragedy to jolt us. Never to late to rectify.
