Outdoor Team Building Activities Trainer Dies In Fall From Lisle Platform
A Lisle trainer died when she fell from a platform 8 meters high while actively playing a rope obstacle course. This is one of the saddest outdoor team building activities that ever happened in the area.
Lynda Peck endured fatal chest and abdominal injuries from the fall, as reported by the DuPage County investigator’s office.
Lisle authorities said that Peck was a trainer for the Corporate Learning Institute, a company that conductsteam buildingactivities at their site in Summerhill Drive.It’s somehow unfortunate that the outdoor team building activities turned out a nightmare.
This institute operates the business on a property owned by Marriott Conference Center. Peck worked as private contractor for the learning institute.
The investigator’s report said that she was on a platform and working with a “zip line,” which is a wire down that people slide using a metal clip attached to the harness.
Tim Buividas of Wheaton operating the institute said they are grieving for the tragic event. He declined to provide details regarding the incident. Responding paramedics brought Peck to a hospital, where she died of her injuries.
A spokesperson for the federal agency said the investigation may take many months. The spokesman said the facility had no previous investigation. This simply means that the outdoor team building activities done here have to be thoroughly investigated.
The Corporate Learning Institute caters to businesses that send employees to the facility for one to several days of outdoor team building activities, using many forms of outdoor rope obstacle courses.
Peck’s family gathered Wednesday to mourn her lost at her home in Algonquin.
Peck had been teaching these courses using high rope courses for around twenty years, according to her family. They said that Peck was adventurous and even enjoyed bungee jumping and skydiving.
Her sister Sheralyn Peck said that her sister was very confident to do all these things in the proper way, which she often did, until this accident. This outdoor team building activities have really been an unavoidable accident.
Lynda Peck graduated in 1975 from the Downers Grove South High School and also attended the now defunct George Williams College also in this area.
Besides her sister, she was survived by her parents, Alleyne and Howard; a brother, Chris, and another sister, Cathy.
