[SystemSafety] Children as a causal factor in major accidents

Hi folks,
I've had an interesting request for a DisasterCast episode focussing on children and major accidents.
  1. Can anyone suggest a major accident where the presence or behavior of children have been a causal factor? I'm looking specifically for where they increased or determined the likelihood of the accident, not just accidents with large numbers of children.
  2. Can anyone suggest (in public-domain terms) ways children have had to be treated as a special case in safety analysis? Off the top of my head I can think of children as a special group in population dose-response modelling for chemical releases, and the debate about child restraints in aircraft.

[Didn't want to send a separate email to the whole list, but a public thank you to John and Nancy for help with my last request re Columbia].
