Bank Exec Falls Out Of Golf Cart; Dead
By Kickntrue on 8/11/09
Stop cheering. Stop it! Seriously, this is sad. Guys! It wasn't one of those THOSE banks... Oh forget it.

Seriously this is sad- I'm just not sure how it happens. So many people have messed around on golf carts so much- and crazy stuff has happened... it's just hard to believe someone could fall out while just riding normally.
A New Jersey bank executive was killed Friday night in a freak accident on the Rancocas Country Club Golf Course in Burlington County, police disclosed yesterday.

Frank Papotto, a senior vice president at TD Bank, formerly Commerce Bank, was injured when he fell from a moving golf cart about 6 p.m.

Willingboro Township police Lt. Joseph Dey said Papotto, 46, of Moorestown, was a passenger in the cart.

He was airlifted to Cooper University Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Dey declined to disclose further details, but said the case remained under investigation.
I just hope when I die it's something really cool. He died saving a kid from a burning building. He got the kid out just in time as the frame collapsed on him, killing him instantly... at age 95. Golf cart deaths make a good story... just not for anyone involved. If you can think of a better way to die- feel free to discuss.

Holy Sh*t!!!! This is the course where I help out coaching at. Played a good 25 rounds this Spring there. Cant believe this happened there, and that you had the story first.

The cart looks pretty mangled there. Also, its a 4 seater - how many others were involved, besides the driver?

Gurantee the driver gets sued in civil court.

wow this is sad, but would it be less sad if it was a guy from one of THOSE banks? I mean I wouldnt mourn one of THOSE guys, but this guy I do feel slightly bad for. I mean couldnt he of at least finished his round? Did they refund his family the cost of the round at least?
