Geocacher Omgekomen Tijdens Het Cachen ...

Recommended Posts

Afgelopen maandag is er een geocacher omgekomen in Spokane Valley's Dishman Hills in de Verenigde Staten. Hij is 30 meter omlaag gevallen en overleed ter plekke. De echtgenote die mee was wist de politie en de ambulancedienst nog te alarmeren, maar dit mocht niet meer baten.

Reactie van de familie richting de Geocaching wereld:

 

Here is a message from the family of Stuart Anderson to the geocaching community:

 

While we as a family are trying to cope with this tragedy, it is comforting to know that people who we have never met are sharing in our loss. Even though Stu was quite new to caching he had instantly fallen in love with it. It allowed him to put his love for the outdoors, adventure, and searching for the unknown all into one activity.

 

I have been told that he and his wife, Kelly, used the handle k123anderson when searching for caches. We have already set up a memorial fund in his honor. It is with Spokane Teachers Credit Union and is the Stuart Anderson Memorial Fund. We will be using donations to help with the costs associated with his memorial service and the expenses that go along with that. We have also started discussing, since he is to be cremated, that where we spread his ashes we would also like to place a plaque in memory of how great a man he is.

 

On a side note, I am sure that Stu would not want this event to have a negative affect on how any one views geo-caching. There is risk involved in just about everything we do in life, and this was just a tragic accident. We never know how short life can be, so use this as motivation to get out and do what you love as often as you can.

 

Once again I would like to express my gratitude to you and the geo-caching community.

Er is inmiddels een mogelijkheid geopend om middels een donatie steunbetuiging aan de familie te geven. Zie bron van het artikel...

Mooi hoor, vooral deze zin:

Er worden op deze wereld veel statistieken bijgehouden, maar zouden er gegevens te vinden zijn over hoeveel geocachers er tijdens het cachen zijn omgekomen?

Een lijst bijhouden was ook niet de bedoeling, ik was alleen nieuwsgierig of het vaker was voorgekomen.

Dat van die coin wist ik miet, leuk initiatief.
