Woman dies while trying to win Wii for Kids.

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

This is something Jack Tompson should be involved in.

I guess now, no one will be listening to that radio station anymore. I agree, they should be put in jail or something, or at least, the least minimum they could do with their dumb-minded acts is give the kids each a Wii. and then the dad can sue them and get more money out of it. But thats just me talking, that radio station is prolly self-centered anyways, and they dont give a sh!t, and theyl prolly just talk about it then wing it and get over it fast.

And very,very sad. It seems like things are really getting out of hand in the world of gaming. It's no game anymore.

It's sounds like something that can cause health problems. One would think that they would ask a doctor if something like this would be letal.

I hate stories like these. But I dont think the radio should be sued. People should know the consequences! I guess she didn't know that to much water can kill you. Did you know if you drink a whole 2 gallon of milk that it would kill you in seconds?

I understand the concept of bullets, sharp objects, and sudden stops; but I wouldn't figure drinking lots of water or milk would kill you. I would have just figured it would be a stupid thing to do and I'd probally get sick or not feel so good.

I don't really believe in lawsuits myself; but I do believe that if this happened to the mother of my children or anyone I loved, everyone is that radio station which took part would wish for a quick death before everything was said and done.

Your right Jones. Now that I think about it. The radio station should of done its homework!!! The mother probably thought it was safe. Sad story indeed!
