So sad.

I've never been behind a lane to see what goes on back there.

Be careful lane mechanics.

How does this happen>?

Im picturing him walking down the lanes and trying to unclog the pins on his back underneath the machine the the catcher coming down on his head>?

Crazy news though and sad indeed.

wow, very sad and also quite strange. I just never thought of those pin machines to be deadly. I mean I always figured you could lose a finger or something if you weren't careful (just like any machine) but not your life. Very, very sad.
