Passing cameras to someone else - risky moment

I know the feeling. I was sightseeing with my family and grandparents. I handed my E-M5 with 9-18mm to a family member so they could take a photo of my family in front of a fountain. As the camera was being handed back to me, somehow my 5-year-old took off and got tangled in the strap. The camera and lens hit the concrete very hard.

The ONLY time I've had to send a camera in for repair was when a friend and I bungled the exchange and it fell onto rocks.  I'm really careful since then, often holding it by two hands until I'm sure the other person has it, and using both hands for the return.
