Accidents don't "just happen": -- they're caused!
The lesson is clear! When an accident happens, there is a need to analyze what happened and why, and although it's sometimes painful to do so, don't neglect who played a significant role in the event. Don't get wrapped up in a "blame game" and think the cause has been found just because some individual can be tagged as a scapegoat! The objective is to find a remedy (and there may be more than one!) so the same or a similar event can be avoided in the future!
