So is there that little going on in the world that some moron killing herself through utter stupidity makes the news? I bet a dozen stupid people kill themselves each day and don't make the news. What's so special about this one?
I wonder if the radio station was even remotely aware of water poisoning?
A preliminary investigation found evidence "consistent with a water intoxication death," said assistant Coroner Ed Smith.
John Geary, vice president and marketing manager for Entercom Sacramento, the station's owner, said station personnel were stunned when they heard of Strange's death.
"We are awaiting information that will help explain how this tragic event occurred," he said.
Initially, contestants were handed 8-ounce bottles of water to drink every 15 minutes.
"They were small little half-pint bottles, so we thought it was going to be easy," said fellow contestant James Ybarra of Woodland. "They told us if you don't feel like you can do this, don't put your health at risk."
Everyone is at fault here, including the genius who drank two gallons of water in a matter of minutes.
