    It's not so much a matter of overdrinking water, but she was just over her bladder capacity. It probably caused some kind of liver damage because she was holding in the water for so long. I think a human bladder can only hold around 16oz or something like that. Anyway, that's really sad. And all just to get a Wii for her kids... Wii kicks ass, but it's not more important than life.

    a tragic story.."Hold your wee for a Wii" competition...Whose idea was that??

    Water intoxication is not common but not unheard of either. Too much of anything will harm you.

    What a tragic story. That really sucks for lack of better words.

    To the person who said the family should own the radio station: Why? The Radio Station didn't prevent her from going to the bathroom. It was her choice not to go.

    Stories like these pop up every few months. A while ago some student fraternity made freshmen drink a lot of water and one of them died. It is tragic that there are still people/groups that make others drink excessive amount when they should have known it was dangerous.

    Going or not going to the bathroom would not have removed the danger. Your cells can hold up to a certain amount of water, untill they burst. The radiocompany should have known this.

    Water not dangerous? If you would drink PURE water (only H20), without any minerals, your cells would explode as well, because they need minerals to hold the water.

    EVERY material/liquid is toxic, given you take a big enough quantity of it.

    Point is: No one can make you do anything you don't want to. If you do so, it is your fault, can't blame your actions on someone else regardless of the risks involved or the prizes.

    I can't believe this stupid radio station didn't ask one medical professional before this contest. I hope her family sues the pants off them (though they probably made contestants sign a waiver)

    why do radio stations always have these over the top ridiculous contests? It's never TV or magazines, it's always radio stations. Ironically, these contests are least interesting on radio because you can't see what is happening.

    Well, I'm sure this woman did not WANT to die, if she would have known the risk. But the radiostation should have warned the contestants up front about the risks. If they had the contestants could not have made a true CHOICE to do it or not. Thats basically the same as forcing people to do it (lying about or denying the danger). Basically doing this kind of stupid stunt is dangerous and anyone who organises these things is responsible for the outcome.

    Dying from water intoxication doesnt have anything to do with drowning or a bursting blatter. Your cells simply burst.
