At first I thought this article was about a port of that game with the earthquake guns.

Me too then I found out it was something far less tragic and composed myself... Even with all the shovel-ware for the Wii, they don't deserve LA's Fracture. That game was a turd.

Why is it that this story is reported as a duplicate twice, but then is approved by a Admin?

Anyway, I wonder exactly how she fell to do damage like that, maybe she was standing on it and slipped with her foot twisting in a contorted way?

You know in the U.S. I bet someone would have sued :p.
