There are checks and balances that let most of us go through our lives reasonably confident things work the way we expect them to. If you read the articles, you can see this is procedural; the people being charged are unlikely to serve any jail time. They will live with this the rest of their lives, that's enough.

The court just needs to be sure this isn't some awful insurance scam or something - and given how rare this is, I imagine the coroner has had to sit through a lot of meetings to even comprehend why a 12 year old was so high off the ground in the first place, let alone how quickdraws work. Again, based solely on the article - it seems someone who wasn't familiar with the equipment (sounds likely they did not read instructions that probably weren't made available) was at fault.

From the same website - the author wrote an article back in 2013 titled Donít Make it Something Itís Not
"this was an accident that couldíve happened to any of us, regardless of age, gender, experience."
