I agree that people who take part in extreme sports are irresponsible as they impose a great burden on their families both mentally and financially. Even though they take a myriad of precautionary measures, there is still a risk. Once accidents take place, the consequence, being severe injuries or even death, might be irreversible, which is unlike light injuries from basketball or football. The families always suffer from the deep concern of losing their family members when those people take part in extreme sports in spite of the precautionary measures taken. Moreover, it's widely known that most extreme sports are far more costly than normal sports. For example, a fully custom climb of mount Everest will run over $100000, including fees for personal gear, local guides and insurance. The huge amount of cost might affect the financial stability of a normal family. If the person unfortunately passes away during extreme sports, the loss of a main source of finance would make it even worse, resulting in rest family members unable to keep on living a normal life. Hence, due to the potential mental and financial burden, people who take part in extreme sports are not responsible for their families.
