Something can be preventable yet still a tragedy.  To act like this isn't a tragedy because he was engaging in thrill seeking behavior is pretty stupid.  There are a lot of adrenaline junkies out there, nothing wrong with that.  Not a fan of telling others how to live their life.  Everyone is wired different and everyone desires different things out of life.  If he was sky diving and his parachute failed to open, would the radio host have the same viewpoint still? Just because you have a family means you can't partake in hobbies if they're risky?  That's no way to live life IMO.  He died doing one of the things he loved according to reports.  It was a very preventable death, but that doesn't make it any less of a tragedy. 

If you choose to start a family, then you do have responsibilities.  That doesn't mean you can't ever have any fun, everything in life comes with risk, but it is irresponsible to act recklessly when other people depend on you, people you brought into existence in the first place.

I'm not saying it isn't a tragedy, it is tragic...in more ways than one.
