After viewing the Sam Koch video below, do you think the German reality show “Wetten Dass” should be canceled? Koch was seriously injured after attempting to drive over a car being driven by his dad during Saturday’s show, which was filmed in front of a live studio and TV audience of millions. The car hit him instead and he suffered serious back injuries and may have been paralyzed. Critics charged after the accident that the show was making a desperate attempt for ratings instead of ensuring Samuel Koch’s safety, leading to the accident.
Check out the video here. I wonder partly why the 23-year-old’s father was a willing participant. I assume they’d practiced the trick before successfully.
“Wetten Dass” has been on the air for some 30 years. The show’s name literally means “Bet It.”
What do you think—should “Wetten Dass” be canceled?
