    its dont wee for a wii!!tragic and very sad!


    SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A woman who competed in a radio station’s contest to see how much water she could drink without going to the bathroom died of water intoxication, the coroner’s office said Saturday.

    Jennifer Strange, 28, was found dead Friday in her suburban Rancho Cordova home hours after taking part in the “Hold Your Wee for a Wii” contest in which KDND 107.9 promised a Nintendo Wii video game system for the winner.

    “She said to one of our supervisors that she was on her way home and her head was hurting her real bad,” said Laura Rios, one of Strange’s co-workers at Radiological Associates of Sacramento. “She was crying and that was the last that anyone had heard from her.”

    It was not immediately know how much water Strange consumed.

    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 eight-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.”

    Ybarra said he quit after drinking five bottles. “My bladder couldn’t handle it anymore,” he added.

    After he quit, he said, the remaining contestants, including Strange, were given even bigger bottles to drink.

    “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.”

    Yea thats a tragedy no doubt, because she was trying to win it for her three children. The radio station should give her kids the wii any because they mother died trying to win it for them. But people need to understand when their body can not take to much of something. It's just said it had to end that way. in addition 10 people got fired from the radio station.

    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.

    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.
