Just17 don't you think it was dangerous? Someone could have died of a heart attack .
I did think the first one was bordering on dangerous, yes.
Someone could have reacted and hurt the child, or as you said died from the fright.
Doing something like that in a confined space such as an elevator can have unwanted results ......
........ a black out and presumably the elevator stopped also, which is sufficient to scare most people, and then the 'appearance' in the otherwise closed space which is not immediately explainable when in a state of fright.
I did wonder how I would have reacted, and if I might have done some damage to the child ..... not a pleasant thought ...... but those who set it up should have considered it.
I saw nothing wrong with the second one ..... just someone standing in a corridor, dressed oddly, no screaming or other 'added' scare tactics such as black out, or locked doors ........ and still she got hit as a result!
So yes, (and your sarcasm is noted), I would have serious reservations about the one you posted.
But I don't expect you to see any of that ...... after all you appear to think it joyful to watch an 8 year old drive an Audi at 60 MPH on a public road with her parents sitting in the car and encouraging her!
