Shanice Nibbs - 2010

17 year old Shanice Shamika Nibbs fell and died as result of temperature changes within her body on a wilderness outing while she was in the care of Five Oaks Achievement Center in New Ulm.

The question must be whether wilderness outings should be allowed when it is related with treatment of teenagers. They don't have same possibility to control their body temperature as grown up adults.

The increased risk of bodily harm which occurs when you take medicated young people out in the wilderness has been been known for at least a decade. Still it happens every day. The counselors are ready to bet. This time the bet turned out deadly for poor Miss Nibbs. She didn't deserve this.

When will people decide whether the stakes is too high?

May she rest in piece.
