Don’t Ski With Your Spouse

I’m not sure what the moral of this story is. A husband skiing with his less experienced wife, does not turn on their avalanche beacons. When he triggers an avalanche and she is killed, he is convicted of manslaughter.

“After testing the snow-pack with other tourers the woman went on ahead with the man following behind to help in case of problems. He apparently triggered a slab measuring 80 by 250 meters which buried his wife.”

I would’ve thrown myself on the mercy of the court because now I am a widower.
