Young mother dies after radio station contest

This was just bound to happen sooner or later. With all our reality TV shows and people doing crazy shit for rewards or just their 15 minutes of fame, it was only a matter of time before someone bought the farm trying to make enough money to buy a farm.

A 28-year-old mother of three died from water intoxication hours after competing in a radio station contest to see which contestant could drink the most water without urinating, according to preliminary autopsy results.

Did she win at least?

Jennifer Lea Strange was found dead by a family member in her Rancho Cordova, Calif., home around 2 p.m. Sacramento County Assistant Coroner Ed Smith said Strange's mother and husband told coroner's officials the young woman had taken part in a radio contest that morning that was based on drinking large amounts of water.

I was unaware that water could be poisonous. Water intoxication huh? Interesting. From now on I'm only drinking whiskey, to be safe.

The winner of the contest reportedly won a new video game system.

So you risk your life for a video game system. You know, here in America, we're really not far away from feeding people to lions like the Romans. I don't know if it's worth a Nintendo Wii to jump over a flaming pit into a vat of water filled with alligators. If I want to be on TV that bad I'll rob a bank.

Smith described the amount of water Strange drank as "excessive.''

Well I would think so if it killed her. If she had only drank two glasses I'd start to wonder.
