  • My Daughter raced 4 wheelers since she was 4. She was a terror to all that raced against her. In 16 years of racing a fractured wrist. I wouldn’t and she wouldn’t have missed those times for the world. Go to Dade City on any Thursday or Saturday night and check out the action .You will be amazed at the age and skill of the riders.

    • It was a side by side not a 4 wheeler. We have one that seats 6.

      • Actually it wasn’t even a side by side. It was a utility vehicle that you would use on your farm or something. Seats two with a little tailgate area

  • Are you kidding me with some of these comments. These parents just lost a child. Don’t dare blame them. Not one parent alive can say they haven’t taken their eyes off their child for a few minutes or looked back and thought to themselves later, maybe we shouldn’t have let them do that. Shame on you people bashing parents that have just lost a child. Pray for this family and for yourself. You need prayers for judging this poor family.

    • Nowhere in this article does it say a child was lost. You are about ignorant. Hopefully this is an eye-opener for everyone involved because instead of just one child being air lifted for a crushed leg it could’ve been 3 children dead. They were children 7-12 who were not wearing any protectice gear! The adult driving should’ve should’ve ensured those children were properly secured with the proper gear. And he didn’t and neither did any of the rest them (includinh the moyher). It was a stupid situation that those children should’ve never been in and all adults involved do deserve the consequences that is coming to them!

    • Chris, what article are you reading? Nowhere does it state anyone LOST A CHILD. It says 3 children hospitalized, 1 with traumatic injuries. I would suggest before YOU bash commentors, you reread the article, pray for better eyesight &/or comprehension of written word. I have read this 3 times & NOWHERE DOES IT SAY ” LOST A CHILD “.
      Fun entertainment for a 7 y.o. should not land them in a hospital with traumatic injuries!!!

  • Prayers for the children and parents.

  • What is wrong with parents?? A 7 y.o. and atv?? Don’t you have any more sense than the kids??? You are supposed to be making sure nothing happens to your children as a parent NOT BEING THEIR PLAYMATE IN STUPIDITY!!! My prayers for recovery of these children. Adult male,as far as I’m concerned, needs to be investigated by cps along with mother for allowing such idiocy.

    • Why is it that once a child gets hurt all the sudden, the first thing people say is get dcf involved. Realizing that maybe just maybe it was a legit accident? Dcf is a double edged sword and can do alot of emotional damage and stress on the children as well as help those who really are abused. This person wasn’t beating them kids but rather entertaining them and spending quality time with them . It doesn’t say faul play was done or abuse. Simply that a accident happened and children were hurt. Maybe a child excited to go for a ride ran out infront of the atv and caused them to turn fast or roll. I am not saying that dcf should not follow up and see what happened but that shouldn’t be the first thing to enter peoples mind. I’m more worried about the children and their conditions and hope that they recover from this. And for the adult involved ,I know they are going thru alot and assure you that if it was a true accident that they themselves are feeling enough guilt and only had the best intentions for giving the kids and fun time. I’m a parent myself and have 4 boys under 10 and they love to go trail riding and if something happened to them I would only hope that people would see the bigger picture rather than automatically judge and get Dcf involved without knowing the whole story.

      • That’s what an investigation will determine, after all there are a bunch of idiots who have children and don’t do a really good job of parenting.
