As far as bowling accidents are concerned, this has got to be one of the worst ways to go.

The link required a 30 second commercial first. I think thats too long. I`ll only wait 15 secs tops though - even thats too much.

I`m shocked. A teacher in the news and it`s not about having sex with a student.

Seriously: Poor guy. I used to work in a bowling alley, and those machines are scary. I feel bad for his family.

i was hoping he just didn`t let go of the ball and flew down the lane and got decapitated by the pin retrieval system... But NOOOO nothing cool ever happens

What`s even worse is that they found his balls, and they weighed 14 pounds.

"SCC? That`s 10 minutes away from where I live.

My sister is planning on going there.."

Well congrats to living in the pootiest neighborhood in Spokane WA. Also, congrats on your sister going to a community college. I am sure she will do great.

He was a professional track coach, not a professional bowling machine operator. Leave dangerous things to those who know how to do it.

i dont understand why he did that. why didnt he get a proffessional, and stop the machine before he tried to reset the pins

"wow that sucks....and that girl at the end was smiling about it... wtf"
I think she was smiling at the thought that she would wake up and it had never happened

freddyferret - you`re wrong. if he died instantly, he couldn`t have suffered. A quick death isn`t painful, a slow death is.

"Sad, at least he didn`t suffer..."

They said he died "almost instantly". That, with the fact it was a bowling pin machine, makes it pretty unlikely that he didn`t suffer. It HAD to hurt!

that really sucks :\ if he was really as good as they said he was and people werent just praising the deceased even if he was a horrible person like people do, this is a big loss for that town. he really should have been smart enough to not try and fix things himself tho.

@ groogle your display picture is very disturbing to me.... GOOD JOB!

Or to retell the story without the tear-jerking: "Erik Anderson, who knew nothing about the machinery and was in no way trained to repair it, instead of notifying the appropriate persons and closing the lane, decided to ignore `Staff Only` and `Danger No Entry` signs, stand in the middle of a dangerous machine with incredibly heavy counterweights, and release it. Predictably, he got squashed."

Yes because going behind a bowling alley to unstick pins from a massive machine is a brilliant idea.

Serious note though, shame :(
