I stayed in an Airbnb for the first time this past summer and couldn't wait to recommend the service to my friends, as an inexpensive alternative to hotels.

A holiday weekend turned into an unfathomable nightmare when his father died tragically on the property grounds. Stone's scrutiny of the Airbnb company and its safety standards comes at a crucial time for the company as they continue to expand. It's certainly a call for action.
