Health and Safety, anyone?

Doing our shopping on Friday came across this, rigged in a shopping centre in Nantes.  The kids hurtling down this "death slide" seemed to be enjoying it.  That is after they climbed the near vertical ladder onto a home made wooden stage lashed to the building structure.  Thought the beer crate they stood on to reach the cable  was a nice touch.

Seems quite safe to me; there is at least someone to supervise.

As kids in the school CCF we built death slides that were a lot steeper than that and slid down them with great glee, with ne’ery a helmet in sight. I am still here to tell the tale. 

The French seem less absolute about health and safety.

The green lashing that is tensioning the zip wire looks dodgy - looks like some kind of cloth.
