Is BC really that boring?

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Reuters) - A girl was recovering from injuries on Wednesday after the shopping cart she was riding in crashed while careering down a hill at an estimated 45 miles per hour.

The girl suffered a broken shoulder and "road rash" after she and several other youngsters decided to take the cart for a ride in the Vancouver suburb of Burnaby, but lost control of their gravity-powered vehicle, police said.

"Although the incident appears to be one of thrill-seeking, police remind youths that partaking in activities such as these can result in severe injuries or worse, death," the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said in a news release.

None of the other youngsters was reported injured.

Those crazy Canadian thrill-seekers!
