TV Game Show Host, Wife Killed

Oh God, not Pat Sajak, who will tell people to spin the wheel!

Peter Tomarken, who was the host of numerous TV game shows, including the popular "Press Your Luck," was killed Monday along with his wife when the small plane he was piloting on a volunteer medical mission to San Diego crashed into Santa Monica Bay.

The host of "Press Your Luck" was killed in a plane crash. Remember, it's not nice to laugh at the dead so make sure you're alone before you let this one out.

Tomarken, 63, was leaving Santa Monica Airport on a trip for Angel Flight West, which provides air transportation to medical patients who are unable to afford air travel, when he reported engine trouble and attempted to return to the airport about 9:30 a.m.

No whammy, no whammy, no whammy...STOP!

A few minutes later, beachgoers said they saw a plane go down just south of the Santa Monica Pier and crash into the ocean, causing a large splash.

Now there's something to say about NOT volunteering and I'm really trying not to laugh about what happened to him and the name of his show.
