Know your own limits and common sense... crossfit can kill people if you are not careful.
I wouldn't blame crossfit for this but as you said the people that decide to do it without basic fitness first or at least working into a full workout. People leading them should also work new people into it. Go at a reasonable pace and work into it and you will be fine.

Many types of exercise can hurt you if you don't work into it or aren't properly trained.

As the video on crossfit I have a friend that got Rhabdomyolysis. We did Ironman Lake Placid, then three weeks later went water skiing all day. Day and a half later he was in intensive care and it could have killed him. I don't blame water skiing or tell people not to do it, just that if you overdue anything it could be dangerous. His body was already broken down and water skiing all day pushed him over the limit.
