What are your thoughts on the rash of mishaps surrounding the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge?


The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is a pop sensation, and has raised public awareness for the disease (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and increased donations for ALS research. It has also taken the life of a Scottish teen (shock and drowning), and also killed a 40-year old New Zealand man (heart attack). Additionally, two KY firefighters were electrocuted (and hospitalized) when their fire truck ladder was struck by an electrical arc during an Ice Bucket Challenge student fundraising event. What are your thoughts on these mishaps, and do good intentions justify the dangers?
