The slide at Burning Man

That I was afraid to go up on (but Andy did).. According to Patri:

"Just heard that the slide had 12 injuries a day, and was responsible for the only death at Burning Man, via a broken neck. It was the top supplier of people to the medical tents. Although, keep in mind that it had something like 10 people a minute, 24/7, so that's 14,400 slides a day.

Should have been shallower. I wonder whether the death was due to bad luck or stupidity."

I was curious about the death, but couldn't find it reported in any online news source. Are you sure it's really true?

I found out over livejournal from a friend, so that's my source...
