Why Was The Brackett Rocket Removed in the First Place?

When I read the following snippet from Building Minnesota’s article on the return of the Brackett Rocket, I thought, “Was Cara Letofsky’s daughter’s head responsible for the removal of the rocket from Brackett Park?

The return of the Brackett Park rocket

“Two summers ago, Cara Letofsky’s daughter managed to get her head stuck in between the vertical slats on the rocket’s third level.

“”She freaked,” Letofsky said.

“Letofsky, who was pregnant at the time, couldn’t squeeze through the 15-inch openings between levels. However, she had the foresight to have another adult follow her two-year-old up the rocket. That person unlodged the young girl, who wasn’t injured.”

I’ve mentioned before that other kids have gotten their heads stuck in the rocket and have grown up to become healthy adults.

So, what was the real motivation for the change?
