Yes and if most of the grown ups who suffered heart attacks were out sledging and being active then they probably wouldn't have the heart attacks....

Hundreds of thousands of people country wide enjoy sledging (or tobogganing in certain circles), and one or two may possibly hurt themselves! If you haven't tried it, try it - it is fun for all the family! But beware because the elf and safety man cometh - next year we may well need armour plated sledges and a certificate of incompetance! :-)
