    I agree, but obviously she died trying to make her kids happy. So why not give them the wii what she died for. It would have sentimental value to them. But they will cry for a while, but that isn't going to last forever. The world is not going to end, so her kids will be right in the middle of whats going on today( games, music, technology etc). But i don't think the radio station had to fire 10 people because the contestants sign a contract.

    Thank you! Somebody understands where i'm coming from. It's done a sad situation, try to make it better. yes i agree to, i believe it was all fun and games until she died because thats how competetions are, you want to win but you don't want to see something horrible happen to your opponent. You want a good fun competetion where you can taunt the opponent,make jokes, laugh, and get serious But you never want to see the opponent end up in the hospital or dead.

    Preliminary autopsy findings concluded a Rancho Cordova woman who competed in a radio station water-drinking contest before she was found dead Friday showed signs consistant with water intoxication, Sacramento County Coroner's Office authorities said Saturday.

    The results of a preliminary investigation released Saturday showed evidence "consistent with a water intoxication death" in the death of 28-year-old Jennifer Strange, Sacramento County assistant coroner Ed Smith said.

    Smith said the autopsy found no traces of "life threatening medical conditions" that would have otherwise explained Strange's sudden death.

    Strange, 28, was found dead inside her Astral Drive home in Rancho Cordova Friday afternoon. Her death came just hours after Strange participated in a radio station KDND 107.9 The End contest, testing contestants to drank as much water as they could without going to the bathroom.

    The winner of the "Hold Your Wee for a Wii" contest would take home a new Nintendo Wii video game system.

    Strange's co-worker at Radiological Associates of Sacramento Laura Rios said Strange participated in the contest Friday morning, then was heading home when she reportedly called her supervisor in terrible pain.

    "She said to one of our supervisors that she was on her way home and her head was hurting her real bad," Rios said. "She was crying and that was the last that anyone had heard from her."

    The supervisor called Strange's mother, who went to her daughter's home and discovered the body.

    Sacramento County Sheriff's Sgt. Tim Curran confirmed Strange's death Friday, but said there were no immediate grounds to begin an investigation.

    According to contest participants, 17 to 20 contestants took part in the competition in a room at KDND's Madison Avenue studios. The contest broadcast during The End's Morning Rave program began around 6:15 a.m. as contestants were each handed eight-ounce bottles of water to drink every 15 minutes.

    Fellow contestant James Ybarra of Woodland said he met Strange at the event and had no idea of the potential danger of water poisoning. "They were small little half-pint bottle so we thought it was going to be easy," Ybarra said. "They told us if you don't feel like you can do this, don't put your health in risk."

    But after 90 minutes of drinking, Ybarra decided he had had enough. "I tapped (out) after five (bottles)," Ybarra said. "My bladder couldn't handle it anymore."

    Ybarra said after he quit, the remaining contestents were given even larger bottles to drink to stay in the competition. Strange was still in the contest when he opted out.

    "I was talking to her and she was a nice lady," Ybarra said. "She was telling me about her family and her three kids and how she was doing it for kids."

    Ybarra said before the contest, he did not read a liability waiver form handed to him by station personnel before signing it. Ybarra said he was surprised by the physical toll he felt after the contest.

    "I was kind of out of it yesterday. I was just drained. I was just going to the bathroom," Ybarra said. "I wasn't feeling well and I actually fell asleep. I woke up with a headache (Saturday) morning and then took a couple of aspirins."

    Ybarra said he was unaware of any medical personnel on hand to monitor the contest.

    In a brief written statement issued Saturday, Entercom Sacramento VP and market manager John Geary expressed sympathy for Strange's family.

    "We were stunned when we heard the news," Geary said. "We are awaiting information that will help explain how this tragic event occurred."

    "They should have had a physician there, some type of statement or as to this can kill you. You can die from this," Strange's friend and co-worker Tracy Beam said. "People have died from this before and here we are. We don't have our Jennifer."

    "I believe everyone should just be fired and let go from that radio station," Beam said. "It should be the end of The End."

    the dude is heartless no doubt. I'm guessing to much PS3 and Xbox cause him to be that way. But dude this is not funny at all.

    The Radio station will be held accountable for this for several reasons.

    1. A nurse called in during the program to warn tehm about it and the DJ ignored the warning stating that the contestants signed a waver.

    2. The waver did not mention health problems. (from what I have heard).

    3. Nothing was done for her even when she mentioned that she had a bad headache and did not feel well at the station.

    4. There was another local death in 2005 from a college hazing incident that had massive publicity. The student died after drinking too much water. It would be expected that someone at the station would know about it.

    They will most likely be at least one lawsuit or even a lawsuit for all the contestants.
