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?
“Two summers ago, Cara Letofskyâ€™s daughter managed to get her head stuck in between the vertical slats on the rocketâ€™s third level.
â€œ”She freaked,â€ Letofsky said.
“Letofsky, who was pregnant at the time, couldnâ€™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 wasnâ€™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?
